The Five Nations Championship
England v Scotland
The Save and Prosper International
Wales v Ireland
The Lumley's International Nigel Starmer-Smith introduces highlights of the weekend's internationals. England were over-run by Scotland last year, and needed to improve a lot to eliminate the memory of the 33-6 defeat. Wales beat Ireland after trailing by eight points thanks to the performance of Jonathan Davies - the key figure once again. After their 60-0 defeat of Romania, Ireland are cock-a-hoop.

: The Natural World

Sweet Water, Bitter Sea Written and narrated by Peter France
Part two of a wildlife exploration of the Holy Land. There is a great wilderness in Israel, where the Judaean desert plunges hundreds of metres below the level of the Mediterranean and meets the shoreline of the Dead Sea.
In this cauldron of heat and sulphur smells, no fish swim in the bitter and imprisoned waters. But where springs bring sweet water from the rocks of the Judaean mountains, life flourishes.
At Ein Gedi oasis desert birds find shade and food. The high cliffs are the realm of the sure-footed ibex. Below, in the rocky wadis, live foxes, hyenas and the hyrax - a rabbit-sized relative of the elephant!

Robbins-Landon , who says: 'This symphony, although not perhaps as perfect as those that preceded and those following it, is by no means a mean achievement.

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.

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.
