: Life on Earth: 3: The First Forests

A natural history by David Attenborough
A series of 13 programmes
For most of earth's history there was no life on land. But over 400 million years ago some tiny plants began an invasion from the water closely followed by the first animals - the ancestors of millipedes and insects. Other predatory pioneers evolved into scorpions and spiders. For life that evolved in the sea, dry land posed problems: rigid body support was needed as well as complex methods of sexual reproduction since eggs and sperm could no longer mix freely in water. How did plants and animals deal with such problems and how did their subsequent pattern of co-evolution eventually lead to the development of flowers?

: Man Alive

This week: Rape
Is rape a crime against all women? Is the legal definition inadequate? Do the victims lead men on? Why do men rape?
Man Alive asked Anna Raeburn and David Munro to make this film enquiry. Since 1953 the recorded incidents of rape (many are not reported) in London alone have increased by over 1,000 per cent. As with all crimes of violence. the cruelty of attacks has reached terrifying proportions. It is now estimated that 30 women a day are raped for no other apparent reason than that they are ' fair game '.
Together with doctors, sex educators and psychologists, three rape victims and a rapist talk to ANNA RAEBURN; their stories reveal serious shortcomings of the law and, more important, of our society.

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.
