Last of a series of eight prize-winning films from different parts of the world. The Mysterious Bee
Australian Phil Simon filmed the more unusual and mysterious aspects of the bees in his suburban garden. Spine-tingling sequences show him covered by some 12,000 bees and not getting stung to death. Over two years he revealed many secrets of the hive. He also shows how you deal with a sting-it's quite simple when you know how.

: Sakharov

Andrei Sakharov , considered by many 'the greatest physicist in the world', is a distinguished member of the Soviet Academy of Sciences. But his presence at protests against the treatment of colleagues and his opposition to the use of nuclear arms lead to his dismissal. Joining a group of Moscow dissidents and re-marrying to Yelena Bonner , his determination and persistence bring him trouble with the authorities and recognition in the West. This powerful film recreates the struggle of the celebrated Russian dissident who in 1980 was exiled with his wife to
Gorky, a city closed to foreign visitors.

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

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.
