A series of nine programmes featuring natural history films from other countries. Chernobyl Autumn
In April 1986 the Chernobyl nuclear plant in the Soviet
Union spewed four per cent of the radioactive contents of one reactor into the atmosphere. The winds carried a small part of the nuclear cloud into northern Scandinavia, the Arctic wilderness which stretches from Norway through
Sweden and Finland where the Laplanders live. They are dependent on hunting and fishing, and whatever else nature provides for their existence. Now the reindeer are so heavily contaminated that many are no longer fit for human consumption. The Lapps' way of life is threatened.
This film, made by the Prix
Italia award-winning director DAN SÄLL, explores the consequences.

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.
