Signals for Survival
The familiar cries of the gulls along our coastline are only a small part of the language of these birds. During the breeding season especially, they use a number of other sounds as well as postures to communicate with each other.
The meaning and use of all these are examined in this Italia Prize-winning study of life in a colony of lesser black-backed gulls.

: Merchant Ivory Season: Shakespeare Wallah

The first in a season of feature films celebrating 20 years of Merchant Ivory Productions, the independent film company formed in 1962 by producer Ismail Merchant and director James Ivory.
Starring Felicity Kendal, Shashi Kapoor, Madhur Jaffrey
with Geoffrey Kendal, Laura Liddell

As the culture of Imperial India begins to wane, a troupe of Shakespearean actors find it increasingly difficult to secure engagements or an audience for their work. Mr and Mrs Buckingham, the founders of the troupe, find it hard to comprehend the 'new' India which seems intent on cutting itself adrift from the heritage of its imperial past. Their daughter, Lizzie, experiences the situation more painfully when she falls in love with a young Indian aristocrat, Sanju, himself being pursued by an Indian film star who shows scant respect for British culture.

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.
