: The World About Us

Ribbon of Life: One Man's Reef
'A lad from Liverpool with a passion for getting into salt water' is one way of describing marine biologist Alastair Birtles. With 2,000'dives on coral reefs around the world to his credit, he is the ideal guide for an exploration of Australia's living undersea wonderland, the Great Barrier Reef. This submarine mountain seethes with a diversity of colourful creatures whose lives intriguingly interweave: a tiny crab imprisoned for life in living coral; an ' upside-down ' jelly-fish; undersea parrots that can build a beach; the trigger fish with its enormous nest; the cleaners, the sleepers, the grazers and hunters, moving by day or night, often mystify but never fail to delight.

: 25 Years in Space

A Horizon special
On 4 October 1957 the space age began as Russia sent Sputnik 1 blasting into orbit to become the world's first artificial satellite.
Twenty-five years later, more than a hundred people have ventured into space. Twelve Americans have walked on the moon, a Russian has spent a year away from earth and a derelict robot probe is speeding towards the stars.
To celebrate the anniversary of Sputnik's launch, tonight's programme recalls the highlights of the space age and reviews the story of space exploration through the words, music and spectacular pictures of the past 25 years.

: We Bring You Live Pictures....

Four programmes about the pioneering days of television outside broadcasts, narrated by John Craven
2: A Grandstand View
Sport was what many people with television sets most wanted to see, but in the 40s and 50s the broadcasters found three main obstacles to providing it: the technical shortcomings of early cameras and other equipment; defining the role of the commentator; and the refusal of many sports promoters to allow the televising of their events.
This programme tells how these problems were solved and how, with the coming of commercial TV in the mid-50s, the BBC's outside broadcast coverage of sport played an important part in the new competition for viewers.

: Film of the Week: Three Sisters

starring
Laurence Olivier , Alan Bates and The National Theatre Company
Laurence Olivier has opened up his classic production of Chekhov's play, first seen on the London stage in 1967, adding two fantasy sequences for this screen version. Set in a provincial town almost a thousand miles from Moscow, at the turn of the century, the drama revolves round the sisters' wish to return to Moscow following the death of their father. The inability to control their own destinies and romantic attachments to army officers at the local battery, become serious obstacles to the plan.
Produced by JOHN GOLDSTONE Directed by LAURENCE OLIVIER

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.
