Arctic Paradise
On the edge of the last frontiers - in the Yukon, on the edge of the Arctic Circle, where winter temperatures can drop to a dramatic 70 degrees below zero - Roger Mendelsohn has chosen to make his home. He lives by fur-trapping in winter and salmon fishing in the short summer.
He came from a Toronto suburb, his wife from the warmth of California and together they have had to learn the skills they need to survive in one of the harshest but most beautiful lands in the world. They live with two small children in an isolated log cabin they built themselves.
Now their peaceful pioneer life-style is under threat. The rising price of gold has brought a new gold rush to Dawson City, just 30 miles away; their wilderness is now being torn up by the big mining companies; their traps disturbed by tractors; small-scale prospectors are staking their claims in the neighbouring creeks.

3: Philip Meninsky
The fall of Singapore in February 1942 was one of the most humiliating defeats in British history. For Philip Menlnsky , a young commando, there began a three-year struggle to stay alive. Forced by the Japanese to work on the notorious Burma Railway, he managed to make a pictorial record of life in the jungle camps. His drawings of surgical instruments and artificial limbs made out of scraps of metal and bits of wood is a remarkable record of man's ingenuity under the most appalling circumstances.

Something to Do with Video
Video has opened many doors. To an Indian family it's a link with a distant language and culture. To the police it's an impartial record of events that could secure a conviction. To the Pirate it means easy money, to the frightened pensioner in the high-rise block it's security.
Already the video-opportunist has appeared on the streets of London. In the summer two men, video-equipped, waited in the darkness of the red-light area behind King's Cross ...

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.
