The Message of the Genes by Dr Walter Bodmer The last in the series

: A Will to Win

Harold Williamson presents six films about people determined to achieve a personal goal.
Evelyn Glennie, along with 600 other students at the Royal Academy of Music, London, is studying to become a musician. She has had to learn to 'hear' and play music in a special way - because she has been profoundly deaf since the age of 12. Music is Evelyn's life - whether it is developing her talent in percussion and piano, introducing deaf children to the joys of making music, or playing before a Royal audience in a performance which prompted SIR GEORG SOLTI to predict an exciting future for her.
'All I want is to be heard, to be judged on my ability like any other musician.'

: The Natural World

Kinabalu, Summit of Borneo The highest peak in south-east Asia, Kinabalu, was once a mountain of legend and fable. To Chinese adventurers it was the abode of a dragon, rumoured to guard a pearl by a lake at the very summit.
Today's visitors have yet to find a pearl.... or see a dragon ... but there are riches of another kind. A cool island rearing precipitously from the hot and humid lowlands,
Kinabalu is a treasure-house of plant and animal life.
Bizarre carnivorous pitcher plants, big enough to drown a rat, share its slopes with huge begonias and stately tree-ferns. Flamboyant rhododendrons shelter the elusive ferret badger as it hunts for giant worms, and there are nearly 1,500 kinds of orchid, many found nowhere else in the world.

by A. F. N. CLARKE
To the army it's known as 'bandit country'-that part of Northern Ireland close to the southern border.
Patrolling here is always tense, tiring, unpredictable and usually very dangerous. Contact - the army term for an armed exchange with terrorists - can take place at any time.
Writer A. F. N. Clarke was a Captain patrolling this area, and this is his story.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
