: The World About Us

The Willow
Little owls nest in them, grass snakes sleep in them, roses bloom in them and purple emperors breed on them. Willow trees are vital to the well-being of much of the wildlife that thrives on the Somerset Levels, one of the most beautiful of Britain's remaining wetland habitats.
Crack, white, cricket bat, sallow and osier - all belong to the willow family and provide human beings with some of the raw materials to make objects that ease our everyday existence. But, despite a growing awareness of its potential value to man and its continuing importance to wildlife, the generosity of this modest tree is often ignored or overlooked. Narrated by DEREK JONES

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.
