: The World About Us

A Desert Place
The Sonoran Desert, southern Arizona. Now one of the hottest and toughest places on earth to live. Its present-day inhabitants are adaptable colonists or survivors from milder times 100,000 years ago when the region was largely grass and woodland.
The spade-foot toad is one of the survivors. It completes its entire life cycle in just three weeks after the annual rainstorm - and then burrows underground. The giant saguaro cactus, on the other hand, largest living thing in the Sonoran, has learned to make use of the rare but violent falls of rain. It takes up a ton of water in a few hours - enough to survive two years of drought.

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.
