The Human Animal
Can man really be compared to other animals? Ants co-operate to form armies and to provide social services for their offspring; baboons experience sexual strife and jealousy; marmots, like humans, can be good or bad parents.
The new science of sociobiology is thoroughly controversial.

: The Friendly Invasion

Last of three Omnibus films about the transatlantic take-over of our popular song and dance.
The Road to Rock 'n' Roll
Rock 'n' Roll was an All-American phenomenon akin to ragtime, jazz and swing. It depended on the same vital raw element, and on the alertness of a new set of entrepreneurs. A disc jockey christened it in 1952. In 1956 ' Rock around the Clock' exploded on Britain. In 1964 a group of young English musicians took America by storm. The American background was filmed in New York and the Deep South. Those appearing include hillbillies, bluesmen, churchmen, radio men, rockabilly Charlie Feathers and record producers Jerry Wexler and Sam Phillips -the man who discovered
Elvis Presley.
Full of good and unexpected things.
Fabulous series. (TIME OUT)

Tonight from BBC Scotland Current Account on The Scottish Connection
What kind of support is going from Scotland to paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland?
The links between the two countries have existed for centuries. But they have never been more apparent than in the last eight agonised years of the province's troubles. Now there is a convincing body of evidence that the exchanges in recent years have amounted to more than just expressions of friendship and marching side-by-side in traditional parades.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
