: The World About Us

Life on a Silken Thread
* Will you walk into my parlour? . said a spider to a fly:
'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy.'
Close-up photography of spiders reveals those that cast their webs like nets, that leap or lie in ambush, deceive or thieve-all in order to obtain a meal or a mate. Some females even eat their mates after mating. The secret of spider success lies in their silk and how they have come to use it in living on land.

: Glasgow

The last of five portraits of an inner city. The Broo
Reporter Eric Robson
Down and out in Glasgow's East End are the city's 3,000 vagrants. Living on The Broo Glasgow s dole, they are the hardest of Britain's hardcore homeless, the longest of long-term unemployed. Many live in Dickensian corners of The Barras street market. And in their own illegal market under the railway arches they sell whatever they can find-old clothes, single shoes, half packets of detergent. Most drink in the Mecca Bar owned by Paul Byrne. 'This has always been the poorest area, where the merchants made their money while they lived in the West End. But my customers are the real Glaswegians.'

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.
