Mr Beesley 's Secret Garden
The first of six programmes on the wildlife of contrasting regions made by Europe's best wildlife cameramen.
The semi-detached suburban garden belonging to John and Valerie Beesley in Bristol is in no way exceptional. But this programme - the result of two years' filming by specialist cameramen-is a safari down their garden path that is full of surprises: where strange creatures swim on the surface of leaves, where wasps hatch from the mummified bodies of aphids and fox cubs gambol on the lawn. A garden has several times as many kinds of plant as the richest woodland - and that leads to a greater variety of animal life. After this exploration of the way your garden grows, converting the chemicals of the soil into foods for birds and mammals, it will never seem the same again. Narrated by BARRY PAINE

: Anna Karenina

Dramatised in 10 parts by DONALD WILSON starring
Nicola Pagett
Stuart Wilson
Part 1
' Happy families are all alike: every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.' Tolstoy's great novel begins with these words and the family we meet first-that of Stiva Oblonsky - is apparently of the second kind. But Stiva's sister
Anna is travelling from St Petersburg to Moscow, so the unhappiness may be only temporary.

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.

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.
