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
Produced for AUSTRALIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION by DAVID PARER

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.

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.
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.
