: Ski Sunday

featuring
The World Championships from Bormio, Italy The Men's Slalom
The final world champion will be crowned today and for veteran Swede INGEMAR STENMARK it's the climax of a memorable career. The world slalom champion at Garmisch in 1978 and Schladming in 1982 is bidding for gold again but the trend away from specialist disciplines in favour of all-round skiers could foil this unique hat-trick attempt. Plus a look back at the medal-winning runs of the new Alpine champions.

: The Natural World

Through Animal Eyes
Is your dog colour blind?
How do cats and owls see so much at night and high-flying kestrels spot tiny mice scuttling in the grass below? Do insects tune in to colours invisible to us? Is a scarlet anorak like a red rag to a bull and can a rattlesnake really see its prey in total darkness? With the help of video techniques and specially-developed cameras, this programme sets out to answer these questions and many more and to visualise what the world looks like through the eyes of a wide range of different animals. The results are often surprising.

: A Will to Win

Harold Williamson presents the last of six films about people determined to achieve a personal goal.
Amin All wouldn't take no for an answer. A teenage immigrant from Bangladesh, he hadn't a penny to his name but he wanted, one day, to open his own small restaurant. He began as an underpaid waiter-to learn the trade.
When the time came, no bank would look at him-he had no security.
But he stuck to his ambition to do something new for Indian cuisine, and the breaks came. Or was it plain persistence? In just five years he's opened three restaurants and is now working on his fourth.
And none of them is small. Film cameraman JOHN BECK Film editor DAVID LEE
Producer JENNY CROPPER

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.
