: The World About Us: Mysteries of the Green Mountain

Weird and exotic jungles clothe the slopes of Mount Mulu, the newest national park in Sarawak, Borneo. They have been home to the largest expedition ever mounted by the Royal Geographical Society.
To unravel the mysteries of those jungles experts from many nations wedded the techniques of science to the skills of those who live in the forest - stunning lizards by blowpipe dart, tracking a civet, stalking termites, trapping moths, even weighing the leaves on the ground. It was an exploration among amazing sounds and spectacular landscapes with soaring pinnacles and, beneath the jungles, rock honeycombed with gigantic bat-filled caves.

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.
