: White Horses

From the Camargue to Cornwall
First of three programmes. When Robin Hanbury -
Tenison wanted two new horses for his Cornish farm, a simple visit to the market was not enough. His whole life has been an adventure and here was an opportunity to fulfil a dream.
With his wife Louella, he journeyed to the Camargue in France and bought two of the white horses for which the area is famous. It never occurred to them to transport them home. Instead they rode Tiki and Thibert all the way to Cornwall.

Hollywood movie, Bing is cast to type as a crooning taxi-driver, who inadvertently becomes the 'owner' of a baby left in his cab by a young mother. Joan Blondell co-stars as a hotel telephonist in love with the carefree
Crosby. A musical romance full of good humour, tuneful songs and - of course - a happy end.

: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 6: The Baking Desert
The hottest and driest places on earth are home to some amazing animals, plants and desert-living people.
Mammals become active at night - the fennec fox, desert wolf, and strange golden mole. Reptiles such as the venomous gila monster hunt in the early morning. By midday all animals have sought shade. But plants must endure the heat.
In the Mojave desert David Attenborough finds a plant that has been growing there for more than 10,000 years. When rain eventually falls, dead plants move and disperse their seeds; flowers put on a dazzling display. Music by ELIZABETH PARKER

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.
