: King's Country

A series of five wildlife films by the award-winning cameraman Simon King , who spent a year observing landscape, habitat and animals in the south of England. Simon presents an intimate view of the countryside as it changes through the seasons: a film chronicle of English wildlife, secret and yet accessible, familiar and yet deeply mysterious.
Coast and Estuary
Along the shoreline Simon films the courtship of little terns and watches a ringed plover
sheltering chicks during a rainstorm.

: Open Space: Homeland

The third of four films with people who live in Britain but have roots abroad.
Beyond the Synagogue There are thought to be
330,000 Jews in Britain today. Many are the descendants of immigrants fleeing anti-
Semitism in Russia, Poland and Eastern Europe before the First World War, and theirs is a complex heritage. No single factor holds the community together, but overshadowing it is the memory of the Nazi holocaust with its continuing impact on succeeding generations. This film explores the identity of Britain's oldest immigrant group through the views of a contrasting group of women, from the religiously very orthodox to the secular, at a time when fears are growing that the community is shrinking.

: Royal Heritage

The Story of Britain's Royal Builders and Collectors Told in ten parts by Huw Wheldon 6: George TV
He was gifted, wayward and original. He spent a fortune on paintings and palaces. In his youth he loved driving fast carriages, gambling and horse-racing. His affairs scandalised polite society. Yet no monarch has had a sharper eye for works of art. The Brighton Pavilion is a brilliant tour deforce, exotic and yet built with the most modern materials.
Huw Wheldon views the private apartments at Windsor Castle and admires the treasures of Sevres china, French furniture and sculpture they contain. In rebuilding the castle, George IV left a Permanent memorial to the splendid self-confidence that followed the defeat of Napoleon.

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.
