: The Natural World

Emas - High Plains of Brazil Where else in the world does a rodent grow as big as a pig; a snake as long as your living-room; and an anteater have a tongue the length of your arm?
Emas National Park provides sanctuary to these and other rare and bizarre creatures of the cerrados - Brazil's grasslands.
This portrait of the Park unravels some of its mysteries; why ferocious ants tolerate thieving intruders; why termite mounds glow eerily at night, and why anteaters wander incessantly over the plains.

: International Snooker

The Rothmans Grand Prix
Tonight's matches prove once again how difficult it can be to qualify for these major championships - and that age is no barrier to winning in snooker.
One table hosts a match totalling more than 100 years of experience and guile.
Liverpool's George Scott (55) turned professional four years ago. Ray Reardon must be wishing he had stayed an amateur after his defeat by Scott in the qualifiers. Cliff Wilson (51), himself an old rival of Reardon's, will hope to restore some Welsh prestige in their nine-frame battle.
Two relative youngsters contest the other match at the expense of Willie Thorne and John Virgo , as another
Welshman, Wayne Jones (25), plays Peter Francisco (33), Silvino's nephew.
DAVID VINE has the latest news and the best of the frames from The Hexagon, Reading.

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.
