Arctic Doctor
A journey by dog sledge with Dr Alex Williams and his Eskimo friend Enaviapi Narrator Duncan Carse
Dr Williams's practice covers a quarter of a million square miles of the Canadian Arctic. When he goes on his rounds to the more northerly Eskimo settlements, he likes best to travel the traditional way - by dog-team, although he seldom has time.
This is the story of such a journey, covering the 200 miles from Pond Inlet to Arctic Bay.
It's a chance to travel in a harsh but very beautiful land and meet a warm and gentle people - the Eskimos of the Canadian Arctic

: Beethoven Piano Sonata

Alfred Brendel plays
Beethoven's last sonata, the profound C minor, Opus HI. Completed in 1822, the work comprises two strongly contrasted movements in perhaps the most powerful of all the sonatas. Of the final chord, Brendel wrote 'This chord ... opens up the silence that follows, a silence we now perceive to be more important than the sound that preceded it.'

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.
