: The Natural World

Battle of the Leaves Leaves are nature's pacifists -or so it seems.
Leaves hang there green and uncomplaining, while animals chew them to death, birds tear them from their stems for nest building, and dusky maidens (it's rumoured) roll them on their thighs to provide grandad with a fragrant cigar.
But foliage fights back.
Leaves struggle for survival in ice and in desert. They battle to the death for life-giving sunlight. Above all, they wage a relentless war against the animals who live on them. Above our heads, beneath our feet, the battle continues.....

: A Will to Win

Harold Williamson presents six films about people determined to achieve a personal goal despite the odds.
Audrey Slaughter knows there is no shortage of glossy magazines for women, but she's certain there's room for just one more. In the 60s she succeeded with Honey magazine, reaching a new teenage readership she was convinced existed. Then in the 70s she scored again when she launched Over 21. Now, against some of the best advice, she's started a magazine for another new market: career women. She wants them to realise that top jobs can be theirs if only they find the nerve to go for them. And she's risked her home - and a good deal else besides -to tell them so. Film editor DAVID GLADWELL Producer ANNE WEBBER

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.
