A film portrait of three markets in the New Forest.... places of combat, where vendor and buyer can exercise their skills of persuasion, bluff and guile to win that elusive bargain.

Jumble, the canny farmers and commoners at the New Forest pony sales and the thrifty housewives at
Ringwood street market.

: The Natural World

The Man Who Loves Frogs Mike Tyler is a 'froggo' - a passion that began in a British pond and then embraced the frogs of the world. Now he courts them in the Australian bush where there's a greater variety than in the whole of Europe and North America combined. There are frogs that burrow and climb, swim or bury themselves alive for years. Among the forest frogs, desert frogs and frogs of hot springs, mountain and shore he still finds frogs unknown to science. Most remarkable of all - and a creature people should all love for its potential benefit to health - is the extraordinary frog that breeds its babies in its stomach and gives birth to them through its mouth.

: Theatre Night: Playboy of the West Indies

by MUSTAPHA MATURA based on The Playboy of the Western World by J. M. SYNGE Introduced by MUSTAPHA MATURA starring
Peggy Ford runs a rum bar for her father Mikey in Mayaro, a small fishing village on the south-east coast of Trinidad. Mayaro is, to put it mildly, off the beaten track and if you were to say that nothing ever happens there you might, with reason, be accused of exaggeration. Imagine, therefore, if you will, the effect on all concerned when a handsome young stranger appears and insists that he has just murdered his father.

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.
