: The Great Egg Race

Presented by Professor Heinz Wolff

This week the teams spend a lot of time thinking about skirts. How long? How short? Perhaps none at all. They also have to make the models on which the skirts will fit; radio controlled and able to float on a cushion of air. In other words a hovercraft built, as usual, from anything you would find in a garden shed.

: The World About Us

Gurkha
'Run they would not and of death they seemed to have no fear', wrote a survivor of Britain's encounter with the Gurkhas in 1814. It was a bloody affair, an unlikely beginning to a long friendship. Ever since, these hill-farmers from the terraced mountainsides of Nepal have been serving in the British Army: legendary soldiers with their curved knives, the kukri, and adopted bagpipes and tartan.
This film follows the remarkable trail of events that takes a shepherd boy from the shadow of Mount Everest to service in a foreign army in the western world. His life will be linked with Britain from the day he enters the Gurkha camp as a hopeful recruit to the day he returns as an old soldier, one of Her Majesty's Himalayan pensioners, back to the hill village he left so many years before.

: Gardeners' World

from Crarae Gardens, Argyll with Geoff Hamilton and Roy Lancaster
Gardeners' World celebrates its 600th edition with a visit to the magnificent Crarae Gardens. Designed and planted around a glen, whose burn tumbles into Loch Fyne , the garden features a wealth of rare and beautiful shrubs and trees set in the spectacular Scottish highlands. But maintaining such a garden is no easy task, and many of the day-to-day problems are faced by the owners of even the smallest of them. Head gardener Jim MacKirdy is on hand to offer practical and sometimes unusual advice.

: Bodyline

Last of five programmes
In the aftermath of Adelaide there are recriminations and dismay that an English gentleman could break the unwritten laws of the gentleman's game. For Jardine, the slur on his integrity is a matter that cannot rest, but the whole affair has gone beyond the field of cricket. As governments and politicians become involved in a bitter exchange of threats and counter-threats, history is about to pass judgement on a driven man who travelled 12,000 miles, not to win friends, but simply to win.

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.
