: The Discovery of Animal Behaviour

An award-winning natural history in six parts. Narrator Andrew Sachs 4: A Question of Learning
Why are some grizzly bears better fishermen than others? How do sooty terns locate their own nests among a colony of thousands? During this century scientists attempted to reveal the nature of learning.
In Russia Pavlov sought explanations from his dogs, with tinkling bells and lights. In America scientists devised mazes, puzzle boxes and 'one-armed-bandits' to explore behaviour. By using rewards they encouraged animals to develop amazing skills.

: Travellers in Time

The award-winning series of four films of early exploration. Introduced from the Royal Geographical Society by the Antarctic explorer Duncan Carse. 1: Everest - First Attempt (1922)
'Mount Everest is great and beautiful. Marvellously built: majestic, terrible.' So wrote one of the first climbers to stand beneath the peak of the highest mountain in the world. Yet these early pioneers were to get within 1,700 feet of the summit; bivouac through a blizzard; get frostbite and windburn; and at the end of their tribulations, return with a classic film.

History in the present
The Last Führer: among the Nazi war leaders tried at Nuremberg, Hitler's successor Admiral Doenitz, received the lightest sentence of all. Now new research suggests Doenitz was far more deeply implicated in the atrocities of the Third Reich than previously imagined.
'They be Evil People': was how British newspapers described the Russians in the late 17th century. A cautionary tale of how Englishmen in the 1720s feared Tsar Peter the Great planned to conquer the world.
The Cult of the Dead: how different were medieval attitudes towards death from our own today? The wills and funeral expenses of the 16th century help provide an answer.

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.
