: The World About Us

The Invaders
Anthony Smith reviews those battalions of plants and animals that, since the Ice Age ended, have become, sometimes surprisingly, British. Desert dwellers on the Isle of Wight, South Americans roaming the Norfolk Broads, Africans in Margate's trees - these gerbils, coypu and parakeets are just a platoon of the army of invaders that have breached the walls of our British island fortress. How and when did they come here? And why is there so often a dislike of any new and foreign creatures colonising our so-called ' natural' countryside?

: The Fifties Revisited

Rene Cutforth leads us through the 50s with the same acumen and humour that he applied to his-three earlier programmes - the 20s, 30s and 40s. With a journalist's eye he selects key material-Everest, The Coronation, Teddy Boys , The Festival of Britain, Rock and Roll, The Angry Young Men. To this he adds his own very personal assessment of the Korean War, Burgess and Maclean, and the Suez crisis.
' The 50s,' says Cutforth, ' was the watershed decade of the century. At the beginning we saw ourselves much as we have always done. At the end we were an affluent and permissive society, well on our way to Swinging London and the radical rejection of our old established image in the world.'
Film cameraman ALEC CURTIS Film editor ROBIN SALES Executive producer BILL MORTON Produced by MARCARET MCCALL

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.
