: Life on Earth

by David Attenborough
A series of 13 programmes 12: Life in the Trees
Long ago a group of mammals sought their fortune in the tree-tops. There they developed binocular vision for accurately judging distances and grasping hands for taking a firm grip. They became the primates - group which includes dazzling gymnasts, deafening choristers and highly - cultured monkeys.
The story takes DAVID ATTENBOROUGH to Madagascar, where lemurs leap through the air with grace and precision, to Japan where monkeys have learned to take tepid baths in winter, and to Central Africa to sit with gorillas!

: Man Alive

The Unholy Alliance
Co-habiting, living together, sharing a bed, living in sin. Whatever you call it, hundreds of thousands of couples choose to set up home together without getting married. By doing so, they challenge the whole convention of marriage; they say they want their freedom and their independence: they prefer to rely on mutual trust, rather than legal bonds. Yet when their relationships break down many of them then seek the security and legal benefits of marriage: even alimony. Man Alive examines this narrowing gap between mistress and wife, lover and husband. Jeanne La Chard and Nick Ross talk to unmarried couples and to others who feel that ' free ' love has its price.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
