: The Master Game

An international knockout chess tournament, presented by Jeremy James
Second Semi-final Donner (Holland) v Larsen (Denmark)
' Well, there's probably no player in the world who has lost so many games with this variation as I did, but I must play it,' says Jan Hein Donner of Holland, noted chess writer and wit, elated by his sensational win in the first round, as he takes on Bent Larsen of Denmark, the most successful chess player in Western Europe for the past 15 years.
This should be a great tussle between two players who had one of the most exciting and entertaining games in last year's tournament.
Expert commentary and analysis by William Hartston , twice winner of this tournament.

: Life on Earth

A natural history by David Attenborough
A series of 13 programmes 5: Conquest of the Waters
Fish occur in populations of billions and there are over 30,000 species, more than in any other group of backboned animals.
The development of the backbone was a crucial advance in evolution - and it probably came from a most unlikely source, a little jelly-like creature called a sea squirt. Later came the development of jaws and a swim bladder. Fish can fly, produce electricity, live in the black ocean depths, survive in hot soda lakes or under the Antarctic ice; even migrate across oceans and up waterfalls - the dramatic achievement of the king of fishes - the salmon.

: Tigris

The Sumerian Voyage of Thor Heyerdahl : a series of four programmes 2: Departure
'I for one am not a sailor. I have been drifting with the wind and the current and most of the men I have with me have no experience of the sea whatever.'
As soon as. the Tigris enters the Shatt-al-Arab, the wide waterway that leads to the Arab Gulf, she's immediately in trouble. She has all the problems that primitive man had - plus modern ones.
The Arab Gulf is one of the most dangerous and congested waterways in the world. There are hidden reefs, oil derricks litter the sea-bed and giant oil tankers take two miles to stop. What are the chances of a primitive reed boat surviving collision with any of these? Commentary spoken by EDWARD WOODWARD

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.
