Doctor in the Zoo
For David Taylor a telephone call at any time of the day or night can mean a journey of just a few miles or thousands. However long the journey the end is always the same -to help a sick animal, be it a dolphin, gorilla, tiger or marmoset.
This film follows him for two weeks, looking over his shoulder at some of the fascinating ways that a zoo vet has of treating not only routine cases but the complex unknown diseases of the more exotic animals in our zoos and wildlife parks.

Orpheus in the Underground a music fantasy by CARL DAVIS to a text by JOHN WELLS with Julian Littman as Orpheus Joanna Carlin as Eurydice
This specially commissioned half-hour pop opera is the BBC's entry for the 1977 Salzburg Television Opera Competition.
Orpheus, whose music has the power to entrance his listeners, is here updated to the role of a busker in the London Underground. This version of the legend, in which his girl-friend, Eurydice, is pursued by an amorous commuter, unfolds amidst the tunnels, trains, lifts and escalators of a strange and distorted Underworld.

Written and produced by JOHN READ
The outstanding beauty of the Scottish landscape inspired a long tradition of fine painting. William McTaggart was born near Campbeltown in 1835. He discovered his own kind of Impressionism on the beaches of Kintyre.
In the 20th century his grandson Sir William MacTaggart used his own even freer interpretation of light and colour to express the dramatic moods of sea, cornfield and sky. Narrator

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
