: Horizon

Professor Bonner and the Slime Moulds
Scoop up a handful of soil from anywhere in the world and you'll be holding in your hand some of nature's strangest creatures-the minute and extraordinary slime moulds. Starting their bizarre life cycle as thousands of independent amoebas, they transform themselves into crawling slugs, then plant-like creatures on waving stalks. Slime moulds have been the lifetime study of Professor John Tyler Bonner of Princeton University, who finds in them clues to some of biology's greatest puzzles - how cells develop and differentiate; the mysteries of pregnancy; the origins of our remote ancestors. Now specialist micro-photography reveals the hidden world of the slime moulds as PROFESSOR BONNER follows the fantastic journey of these strange creatures of the soil.

: Pound a Round

The story of the boxing booths
Prize-fighting on fairground boxing booths is a disappearing spectacle. It was once known as the 'school of champions' and many famous boxers, like Tommy Farr began their careers fighting all-comers for a pound a round to entertain the crowds. The tradition is almost dead, but Ma McKeowen , now aged 84, still tours with the family boxing booth round the fairgrounds of the south, remembering the days when she discovered boxers such as Freddie Mills, who became a world champion.

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.
