: The World About Us

Sexual Encounters of the Floral Kind
Plants don't hold up their flowers to heaven and the sun simply to be noticed: they are designed for one thing only. Sex in the plant world involves dressing up, advertising, seduction, the use of some intriguing aids and even a little cheating, human style. For this investigation into the extraordinary sex lives of plants, Oxford Scientific Films have searched Australia, the Arctic, Central America and the British countryside to reveal the intriguing and bizarre encounters between plants and their pollinators - the ' go-betweens ' on unwitting errands of love.

: Film of the Week: The Migrants

Starring Cloris Leachman Ron Howard Sissy Spacek
During America's great depression years of the 1930s, farmworkers moved from one area to another desperately seeking work. Inevitably they were exploited by the landowners and the often brutal middlemen. This moving portrait of a family trying to survive on the New Jersey farmlands features Sissy Spacek, last year's Academy Award winner, in one of her important early roles.
Screenplay by Lanford Williams from story by Tennessee Williams.

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.

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.
