: Horizon

The Careful Predator Everybody knows the wildlife of Africa is doomed. After all there are too many People, and people and animals don't go together. Not so, it seems. There is now a controversial experiment going on in Zimbabwe that points in the other direction. Villagers are encouraging elephant, lion and leopard back and even allowing giraffe, eland and impala on to their grazing land - alongside, or even instead of, their cattle.
In exchange they are getting food and income from a carefully controlled hunting industry. Rather than uncontrolled poaching, the legal sale of the skins and ivory may turn out to be better for both the people and the animals.

: Arena

Painting for Pleasure ... and Profit
Five Artists of the 80s
The artists Julian Schnabel , Markus Lupertz ,
Sandro Chia , Francesco Clemente and Georg Baselitz command some of the highest prices on today's booming art market. Their paintings, monumental in scale and mainly figurative in style, have begun to fill the walls of private collections world-wide. They have been hailed as the 'New Expressionists' - though some cynical observers accuse them of turning out their pictures to order.
As they establish themselves in spacious New York premises, castles in Germany and even retreats in India, Arena examines the real driving force behind today's art world successes. Film editor PETER GEISMAR

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.
