: Roots of England

A series of six films 4: Hull
Most of Hull's dockers are descended from the impoverished workers who flocked from all parts to dig the deep-water docks in the 19th century. Now their numbers are dwindling and only dockers' sons are eligible to join the long waiting list for a job.
Brian Trueman talks to the dockers about the tough life that has left their community bitter about the past, keen on every aspect of welfare, as well as passionate about Rugby League.

: Horizon: Did Darwin Get it Wrong?

How did the elephant get its trunk? Or the giraffe its neck? Darwin's theory of evolution says that societies evolve slowly from one form to another. So ancient fossils and bones should include an elephant with half a trunk, or seven-eighths of a giraffe's neck. But they don't. And these gaps occur in all classes of animal fossils, from molluscs to man.
So the established theory is now under strong attack both by Biblical Creationists, who offer well-argued objections to Darwin, and by a range of scientists who offer an alternative explanation. Could evolution occur in a series of jerks, switching suddenly into new creatures? With the help of alligators and beetles, chimpanzees and dinosaurs, elephants and fruit-flies, Horizon examines the evidence. Narrator Paul Vaughan

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.
