: Only One Earth: The Sinking Ark

Presented by Julian Pettifer
Every day, one species - or more - becomes extinct.
Much of our food, fuel and building materials comes from plant and animal resources - but they are running out.
The course of evolution is now up to us - keeping the diversity of plant and animal life is crucial to our survival. This is a global report on the facts, the threats and the future, showing the uses, both potential and realised, of the species around us. Wild plants have now provided successful treatment for certain cancers. A cure for AIDS must be a possibility, but will the choice of genetic diversity survive in our fast-changing world?

: Top Gear

'Discretion is probably exercised more in traffic law enforcement than in any other single area of the law.' William Woollard asks whether this Oxford University research conclusion means a fair deal for the motorist stopped by the police.
Sue Baker tests two new economical models competing in the crowded super-mini class, and visits
Sweden to inspect a new anti-skidding device currently in production and a prototype computer-driven suspension system.
Dan Cherrington , presenter of BBC1's Farming, tests the new Isuzu Trooper on and off the road, and compares it with the popular Mitsubishi Shogun, and the all-British vehicle that created the market for sophisticated four-wheel-drive cars, the Range Rover. Strictly off the road, Chris Goffey reports on a 'competition safari': four-wheel drive is essential, but pots of cash are not. Producer KEN POLLOCK

: Mediterranean Cookery

The last in the series with Claudia Roden Italy
All the main influences of the Mediterranean are found in the cooking of southern Italy. In Sicily, the love of sweet things, the sugar and vinegar in savoury dishes and the currants and pinenuts in sauces for pasta, reflect the early Arab presence.
Around Naples and Salerno, it's tomatoes and pasta, pizza and mozzarella; simple food, simply cooked, that relies on the quality and freshness of the ingredients, the perfume of herbs, and good olive oil. In Puglia, the heel of Italy, there is a feeling of ancient times and of isolation. Here the food is at its most basic, the fish and seafood are in abundance, and the diet is said to be the healthiest in the world.

: His Voice His Written Word

Christopher Nolan is a writer. His first book was published, with considerable success, when he was only
15. It's something of a miracle that it was written at all since Christy was brain damaged at birth and cannot walk or talk. Indeed, he wasn't able to write until he was 12, typing using a unicorn stick attached to his head.
Now 21, his second book shows that his youthful success was no accident.
Under the Eye of the Clock is the inside story of his life, frankly told in remarkable, disturbing prose. This film looks at his work and the life that's in 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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
