A Portrait of Lake Dal, Kashmir ' If Paradise is anywhere on earth it is here.' With these words, the builder of the Taj Mahal celebrated a stretch of water that is a paradise for the Kashmiris who grow flowers and vegetables on its floating gardens, and for the thousands of tourists who take to its famous houseboats.

Rates - Through the Roof?
This year's rate increases have been some of the biggest-ever, whilst many areas have also seen sharp cuts in services by local councils. Do we get value for money in local government, or is there something fundamentally wrong with the way we pay for its services? And how much control should the Government have over local spending plans?
David Jessel looks at the facts and fictions behind the rates.

: The World About Us

Some Very Gallant Gentlemen
150 Years of Exploration with the Royal Geographical Society 1830-1980
Introduced by Duncan Carse
The conquest of the Poles, the exploration of the great deserts, the discovery of the sources of the Nile and the Amazon, the ascent of Everest - all have been achieved in the last century and a half. And it was this golden age of exploration which saw the birth and rise of the Royal Geographical Society. In those last 150 years the society has supported more than 1,000 expeditions and helped fill in the many blanks on the map.
Tonight's programme joins an expedition-planning seminar as it considers journeying to the farthest ends of the earth; and looks back to some of the earliest exploration film ever shot: Shackleton's ship Endurance being crushed in the ice of the South Pole in 1915; Captain Noel
(above; taking part in the first-ever attempt on Everest in 1922; Dr Hamilton Rice exploring the Amazon by canoe and aeroplane in 1925 - film from the Royal Geographical Society's archives, never before seen on television.

: MacLeod's America

Cajun Country
Donny MacLeod travels deep into the swamps and bayou of Louisiana to discover Cajun country.
The Cajun today still lives in isolation from the rest of America. He still speaks the pidgin French of his forefathers, driven into the swamps by their religious persecutors two centuries ago. And he still hunts the muskrat and the beaver in the murky channels that run into the Gulf of Mexico.
It was at sunset that MacLeod set off in search of more deadly swamp creatures in the company of WILLIE BADEAUX, the legendary ' alligator man' of Bayou Gauche.

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.
