: The World About Us

A kaleidoscope of the most delicate and beautiful insects in the world. Their beauty has proved irresistible ever since the days when early collectors bagged the huge and elusive Birdwings of Papua New Guinea with shot-guns. Yet there is far more fascination in the live butterfly: territorial British butterflies fight off intruders; Australian armoured caterpillars live in ants' nests; the amazing Monarch butterfly migrates thousands of miles, wintering in a secret hideout in Mexico. There, 20 million Monarchs clustered in a few acres of forest form one of the most dazzling spectacles in the world.

: The Restless Eye

Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863)
A film based on his paintings and his journals.
' Witness against the eternal and incorrigible barbarity of man ' - Baudelaire, the great critic, on his hero Delacroix, the great painter. Lions devouring horses, massacres of slaves, the great battle scenes of history, and then suddenly and simply, one single flower-such is the range of this man torn between violent emotion and the need for control-the great Romantic haunted by a love of quiet and peace.
Using the Journal that Delacroix kept-an outstanding book in its own right - this film tells the story of the life and work of the greatest French painter of the first half of the 19th century.

A four-part screenplay by CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON from the novel by MALCOLM BRADBURY starring and 4: Gross Moral Turpitude
' History charges everyone a price for the stands they choose to make.' Howard seems to be about to pay his dues, but in the fight for his academic life, the University is the battlefield. As in any war the choice of survivors - and casualties - is very arbitrary and contingent.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
