Edge of the Blizzard
1: Kings of the Sea and the Air
Two thousand kilometres south of Australia, Macquarie Island lies isolated in the stormy Southern Ocean, a life-raft for millions of penguins, seals and albatrosses which come ashore to breed.
One of the spectacular inhabitants of this bustling animal metropolis is the king penguin, which was once boiled down for its oil in giant pressure cookers. Now protected, these birds crowd Macquarie's beaches, living in a carefully-ordered society in which giant petrels, great skuas and feral cats have a vital role to play. Narrator JOHN HEDGES

: Inside Story

A series of five documentary films on topical subjects.
3: A Home for Stephen
Stephen is one of 12,000 waiting to be adopted, but he is of a group of children deemed virtually un-adoptable. For when he was only nine days old, Stephen was struck down by meningitis. Nearly five years later he lives in an institution, unable to walk or to talk.
The Dooleys of Haverhill in Suffolk are a conscientious and close-knit family. They earnestly wish to adopt the boy. To a lay eye the match seems inevitable and desirable. But there are complications, and as the weeks turn into months, what seemed a formality becomes a nightmare.

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.
