: Flower of the Month

Planting a new rose, says Geoffrey Smith , is a real butcher's job - be bold, cut away most of the bush you've just paid for and you'll be giving it a good start in life. Look after your roses and they'll repay you with a brilliant succession of blooms throughout the summer. Film editor PETER RINGSTED Producer ERICA GRIFFITHS

: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 11: The Open Ocean
The ocean is ancient, varied and vast, covering 70 per cent of the Earth's surface. It contains extraordinary creatures like the leafy sea dragon, the narwhal 'unicorn of the sea' and the whale shark. It has kelp forests, deserts, coral reef jungles and the cold, black, permanent night of the deep sea. It affects our oxygen and our weather.
David Attenborough shows the riches and diversity of this spectacular realm, particularly off
Newfoundland where millions of capelin fish provide a feeding bonanza for birds, seals and great whales. Sound LYNDON BIRD

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
