This series shows how someone, somewhere is always after your money, and how you can hang on to more of it; and Leslie Chapman , author of Your Disobedient Servant and the scourge of bumbling bureaucrats, gives his personal views on how to stop wasting money.

: The Further Adventures of Lucky Jim

written by DICK CLEMENT and IAN LA FRENAIS , based on a character originally created by kingsley amis
4: The Apartment
It is 1967 and Jim Dixon , late of Eckersley, Yorks, is in London trying, but somehow failing, to get in on the swinging 60s he's read about. Perhaps having his own flat will make all the difference. At least he'll have somewhere of his own to get his head down-preferably next to that of a friend of the opposite er ... gender.

: Horizon: The Sea Behind the Dunes

Winner of the Bristol and West Wildlife Conservation Award at Wildscreen 82.

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.

: From Where I Stand

There are many faiths, but the spirit is one, in me, in you and in every man. (LEO TOLSTOY) In this series of films six people reflect upon the faith they practise and explain how it helps them to live in Britain today. 4: Michael Fortounatto
MICHAEL FORTOUNATTO is a priest of the Russian Orthodox Church in London, a church whose parishes are scattered all over Britain. Once a year the children of the church come together to experience the Orthodox way of life at a summer camp in Sussex.
' The sense of community created every year in this camp may only last a fortnight but all of us return home with a deeper sense of what the Orthodox tradition has to offer.'

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.
