: The Natural World: Save the Panda

A black-and-white bear or a giant racoon: scientists are still arguing the origins of China's legendary and much-loved giant panda. Today this symbol of endangered wildlife faces again the threat of starvation in its last wilderness stronghold as its favourite food, bamboo, dies out.
Recently, a unique Sino-American expedition has not only been tracking and observing wild pandas in the spectacular heart of the mountainous province of Sichuan, but working with the Chinese to perfect techniques of breeding the giant panda, whose enigmatic sex-life has frequently made global headlines.

: Mistress

The first in a new series of Forty Minutes documentary films.
'I would have thought that at least 50 per cent of married men in this country either had a mistress, or have one, or will have one....'
'I think a mistress puts a bit of spark back into a marriage, especially a marriage that's on the wane.'
'Some wives are more than pleased if their husbands have got a mistress. It takes the strain off their own relationship.'
Three mistresses from very different backgrounds talk frankly, ruefully and often wittily about their long-term liaisons with married men. The first is a very modem mistress, who openly shares the man in her life with his legal wife. The second has always played a secondary role, her life a lonely vigil, redeemed only by rare and brief encounters. The third enjoyed all the pleasures of being pampered, until she became pregnant, when she became less his mistress, and more the mother of his secret family. All talk shrewdly of men and their weaknesses, of secrecy and discovery, of betrayal and abandonment, and of the eternal triangle - husband, wife, mistress.

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.
