: The Making of Mankind

A seven-part series tracing the origins of our species, presented by Richard Leakey
3: A Human Way of Life
How did our distant ancestors live and work? How did they organise their society? What were they really like? From bones and stones discovered on one of the oldest camp sites in the world, archaeologists have begun to piece together a picture of life 11 million years ago. And in the remote Kalahari desert RICHARD LEAKEY visits one of the few remaining huntergatherer groups left in the world - the ' ! Kung' people, the bushmen of the Kalahari. They live off the land gathering wild plants, hunting wild game, establishing temporary camps in the open, much as our ancestors must have done for millions of years. It's a way of life that provides clues to those patterns of behaviour that ensured the survival, and ultimate success, of our species.

: The Light of Experience

A series of eight personal accounts describing experiences which have changed people's lives. 4: A Strange Partnership
For four years scientist Dr Horace Dobbs followed the comings and goings of a wild dolphin he called Donald. It soon grew into far more than a scientific exercise. When Horace was made redundant, Donald became his symbol of freedom and helped him decide how he would set about making a new start.
'Donald came into my life at a time of crisis. I had to make a decision. He was undoubtedly involved in me making the right choice ...'

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.
