Calhoun Rides Again (R)

Chris Serle discovers some of those glorious golden moments from the largest film and videotape library in the world. Aided by a team of square-eyed researchers, this week he looks at what we all stand up in - the body. There are beautiful 60s bodies from Whicker's World, fashionable bodies from the 30s, and unique footage from original keep fit expert EILEEN FOWLER. Guest Bonnie Langford shows how to move the body on The Hot Shoe Show and looks at Chris moving his in In at the Deep End. There's comedy from The Rag Trade, the best of the 1984 Olympics, even flowerpot bodies from Bill and Ben The Flowerpot Men. All this - plus, the naughty bits from Monty Python's Flying Circus. The best of the Beeb for all the family - the body - it's all yours.

: States of Mind

Jonathan Miller talks to eminent psychologists.
In the 18th century it was assumed that the mind was 'transparent to itself - that everything occuring in the brain was available to conscious thought. This idea seemed much less plausible after Freud introduced the notion of an unconscious mind.
Modern psychology, though, has introduced another picture of unconscious mental processes which has nothing to do with conflict, guilt or repression, but without which it is almost impossible to account for some of our distinctively human abilities such as language.
Professor Jerome Fodor from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology discusses how this other, non-Freudian, unconscious might be organised, and how it relates to our conscious thinking. Production PHILIP SPEIGHT and DAVID F. TURNBULL (R)

: The Natural World

Kingdom of the Ice Bear
Part 2: The Land of Beyond The Arctic is a land of extremes - the harshest of winters and briefest of summers - yet caribou walk 600 miles to give birth in the snow, and barnacle geese fly 2,000 miles to nest there at the risk of starvation.
Prehistoric-looking musk oxen fight so hard for females that the effort sometimes kills them!
Although always too cold for trees to grow, for just eight weeks the frozen land warms to the midnight sun. Lush vegetation and carpets of glorious flowers transform the vast spaces into breeding grounds for a surprising variety of mammals and birds, and millions of insects. Wildlife lives on the very edge of existence in this land of rare and stunning beauty. Narrator Hywel Bennett Photography HUGH MILES

: Comrades: All That Jazz

The third of 12 films about life in the Soviet Union.

Sergei Kuryokhin is a jazz rock musician living in Leningrad. For 18 months the BBC asked for official permission to film Kuryokhin and were repeatedly refused. Finally the producer went in as a tourist with a friend and shot the film on amateur video equipment.
The film follows Kuryokhin as he meets friends, relaxes with his family and rehearses with his big band Popular Mechanics. The band has a large following among the young people of Leningrad despite, or perhaps because of, the fact it is disapproved of by the state authorities. Kuryokhin talks openly about his problems and ambitions and shows that it is possible to live beyond conventional society in the USSR.

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.
