: Life on Earth

A natural history by David Attenborough
The story of life from the first primitive cells to the plants and animals that now live around us. A series of 13 programmes 4: The Swarming Hordes
The number of insect species runs into millions; a single termite colony may consist of a million individuals; a locust swarm even a million million.
But not all insects destroy plants as locusts do. Some have developed extremely close relationships. Insects pollinate flowers and in many cases neither flower nor insect can survive without the other.
Other relationships exist between Plants and social insects such as bees and ants. In such societies one individual may sacrifice herself apparently for the good of the colony. How such behaviour could evolve through natural selection was a problem that confounded biologists for many years.

: Man Alive

This week:
Who Wants a Gold Watch Anyway? ' Time to do everything I've always wanted to do.'
' I feel useless - plenty of time to do nothing.'
A third of our lives will be spent in retirement - that's the prospect as people live longer than ever before. How will we cope with all that time on our hands - perhaps 30 years of it?
Do people still want to retire at 60 and 65, or will jobs become so hard to find that work will become a privilege? Above all, can we afford to have one in five of us sitting at home? Instead of prolonging life with new drugs should we concentrate on helping people to be more active in retirement?
Harold Williamson looks at the way three people face retirement. And at a time when the government is formulating its long-term policy on old age, the programme discusses when people should retire. what help they need and whether more money really is the only answer.

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.
