Fifth of six journeys into the spring countryside in search of wildlife and the natural world around us.
Upstream from Plymouth Sound with Malcolm Coe , ecologist
Peter Fowler , archaeologist Maurice Tibbies wildlife cameraman
The river boundary between Devon and Cornwall is rich in wildlife. Steep woodlands conceal old mooring places, arsenic mines and disused lime kilns - relics of industry that once scarred the landscape. Hidden now beneath a canopy of wild vegetation, there is a secret world of the past to be explored in the Tamar Valley.

: Happy Anniversary, White City

featuring The 1977 Spillers Greyhound Derby

The Greyhound Derby originated at the White City Stadium 50 years ago. From the first the prize money was high, ensuring that it was the race of the year. In 1927 Entry Badge won £1,000; tonight the first dog past the post picks up £17,500 for its owner - over £600 a second! In addition to live coverage of two other greyhound races on this gala evening, David Vine recalls the sporting years of the White City from its opening for the 1908 Olympic Games and talks to some of the people who contributed to a history that includes such diverse events as the Chataway V Kuts classic 5,000 metre race, Freddie Mills v Gus Lesnevich for the World Light Heavyweight title, and that most famous of all show jumping horses, Foxhunter, ridden by Colonel Harry Llewellyn, winning the King George V Cup.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
