: Monkey: The Power of Youth

Old Chinese proverb says: 'He who mixes Monkey business with pleasure liable to end up making people laugh.' As in the bizarre adventures of Tripitaka and his boon companions Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy.
Or how they met a king who knew he could obtain eternal youth by eating Tripitaka.

: In the Country

Presented by Angela Rippon who each week introduces us to the people, places and wildlife that make life in the country so appealing.
Two traditional delicacies of the countryside are venison and trout - both culled from the wild to grace the table. Today the game in our forests and lakes is managed by experts who keep the numbers finely balanced.
Phit Drabble tracks down deer in Cannock Chase and Gordon Beningfield goes fishing for trout in a reservoir. Back in the studio, with conservationist Elizabeth Eyden , they consider the implications of deer culling - and ask whether fishing is fair game.

: Kelly

with Geordie pop-star Alan Price.
The heroic story of the Tyneside-built warship HMS Kelly and her famous captain. Lord Louis Mountbatten, was celebrated in drama and song when Alan Price, accompanied by his own band and music director, got together with local performers in his home town of Jarrow during the Queen's Jubilee visit to Tyneside in July 1977.
This filim, first shown in February 1978, observes the preparations for the show and explores the reasons why the story of HMS Kelly remains a legend on Tyneside.
'It brought back memories both sad and warm - they were rough times but unforgettable. In the jaundiced 70s it's a rare event to and a pop composer stirring patriotic feelings, but I bet there won't be a dry eye in many houses tomorrow evening.' The late Lord Louis Mountbatten in an interview with the Daily Express.

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.
