In this short series there is another chance to see some of the world's finest observatories at work, visited by Patrick Moore for The Sky at Night.
Mauna Kea - Half-way to Space
Mauna Kea, in the Hawaiian Islands, is almost 14,000 feet high. At its summit the air is thin, and the skies are clear - which is why some of the world's largest telescopes have been set up there.

First of eight programmes with Jeremy Cherfas on the changing face of zoos and wildlife parks. Captivation
Alligator wrestling, cuddling koalas, and peering at penguins are aspects of our desire to be close to animals. Zoos rely upon our need to have contact with strange and exotic beasts, and have developed their own brand of show business - including the all-electronic jungle.

: Now the War is Over

A series of films about Britain from 1945 to 1951.
Britain Can Make it
With the country facing bankruptcy, all hands are needed to get British industry going again. Cinema advertisements appeal to young mothers to return to work and, as a steelworker remembers:
'There was nobody on the dole at all. You could start work at one place and if you got fed up at 10 o'clock you could be in a new job by 2.0.' The world is clamouring for
British goods. Nationalisation promises a new dawn in industrial relations and, for a time, it seems the unemployment of the 1930s has gone for ever.
Film editor CHRISTOPHER HALE Producer PETER GRIMSDALE Executive producer
ANGELA HOLDSWORTH
(An exhibition based on the series can be seen at the Museum of London in the Barbican until January). Book, £10.95 from booksellers

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.

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