: The Genuine Article

A series of six programmes 3: SculpturePresented by John FltzMaurlce Mills
Forgers of stone sculpture go for the big sales to museums and private collectors. Once suspected. they are usually found out. But alongside them is a whole industry turning out fake metal statuettes. How do you decipher the catalogue code which gives the sale-room's opinion of an object? How do you tell if a figure has been artificially ' aged '? And is there any defence against the flood of fake netsuke - plastic imitations of Japanese ivories - coming on to the market?

: Horizon: The Sea Behind the Dunes

Horseshoe crabs scuttle across the beach to take part in a mating orgy that's 300 million years old. A slender pipefish gives birth-nothing unusual in that-except the pipefish is male. A newly hatched turtle heads unerringly towards the ocean it has never seen.

These are just some of the star turns in this portrait of Pleasant Bay, a small stretch of water and marshland in New England, on the East coast of America. A group of American film-makers spent a year observing and recording the life of the bay; the result is a remarkable close-up look at a natural habitat and at the bizarre and beautiful creatures that live there.

Dramatised by Josephine Poole
Anthony Shaw's priestly life is spent in pursuit of sinners. He is a zealous saver of souls. But a priest can't work so close to the devil without getting acquainted. A year ago BBC South West asked viewers to send in their stories and experiences of a mysterious kind. A selection of these stories was given to professional dramatists. This is the first of seven films of the West Country Tales.

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.
