: The Natural World

The Desire of the Moth
The largest known moth in the world has wings the size of a dove, the smallest lives inside a leaf. Although they are creatures of darkness, the bizarre designs and garish colours of moths rival those of butterflies in the hide-and-seek game of life. Among the stories of their double lives are tales of heroes that rescued Queensland from the prickly pear, blizzards of bogongs that were a summer feast for the first Australians, and the story of that irresistible desire that draws the moth to the flame and sudden death.

: Comrades

The fifth of 12 films about life in the Soviet Union.
October Harvest
Mariya Kulinich is 78. She has lived in the same peasant village through revolution, civil war, famine and Stalin's collectivisation programme. Through it all she has kept her Christian faith and her loyalty to the old customs of the Russian countryside.
Her three sons also live on the October collective farm. At harvest time they are at their busiest, for the state - and for themselves. Some private enterprise is now allowed, and this 'Leninism with loopholes' helps pay for their long-awaited new car. Photography REX MAIDMENT Sound MICHAEL TURNER

: Friends and Friendships

"Everyone's a friend of someone, Although it's plain to see, That every friend has got a friend, Who's not a friend of me."
Roger McGough writes and narrates the thoughts of a lonely boy looking for a friend in his new school. All around he sees friends and friendships, acted out by pupils of Speke
Comprehensive School. What with the betrayals, the jealousies and treacheries, it's not always an idealistic view of friendship but any friend is better than none if your feelings can be summed up like this:
"I'm boots without laces, I'm jeans without the zip, I'm lost, I'm a zombie, I'm a dislocated hip."

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.
