: Q.E.D.

The Long Night of the Lion Narrated by Anthony Clare Previously, you have only seen the lion during the day. But lions are nocturnal animals and daytime hunts are the exception rather than the rule. Now, from Savuti in the Chobe National Park in Botswana, comes a remarkable study of the secret life of the lion. For three and a half years, a team of researchers has followed lions throughout the night by the light of powerful searchlights.

: Chronicle Over Greece

Lord Elgin and the Parthenon Presented by Magnus Magnusson
'Every traveller coming added to the general defacement of the statuary within his reach. It was no part of my original plan to bring away anything but my models.'
It was with these words in 1816 that Lord Elgin argued his case for having removed many of the finest sculptures from the Parthenon. The controversy surrounding the 'Elgin Marbles' has raged ever since, and Melina Mercouri is just the latest in a long line of Greeks demanding that the marbles should be returned. The story of how Lord Elgin secured them, of Byron's vicious attack upon him and of the Earl's subsequent ruin. Producer JULIA CAVE

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.
