The Plunderers
The treasure trail 'is the murder of man's history and it's a tragedy.'
History is murdered in the search for buried treasure, not just gold and silver, but fractured pots and broken statues, the highly saleable relics of past civilisations. Meet curators, smugglers, dealers and indignant archaeologists anxious to preserve intact the evidence of the past.
Controversy continued with the announcement by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, of the million dollar purchase of the Euphronios Vase - the so-called 'hot pot'. The trail leads from New York to the Etruscan hills in Italy, to meet tomb robbers, policemen and a man who fakes pots for a living. Reporter John Percival

: Pandas in Peril

The giant panda is one of the world's best-loved creatures, but also one of the most threatened. There could be as few as 1,000 left in the wild, mist-covered mountain forests of China.
In this Newsround special John Craven reports from behind the 'bamboo curtain' on a unique joint project between the World Wildlife Fund and the Chinese government to save this rare animal from extinction. He visits Wolong breeding and research centre in the heart of the panda's homeland in this special programme - the first of its kind by a television team from the West.

: Clive Jermain: The Best Years

Clive Jermain 's play
The Best Years of Your Life was first shown in May 1986 to great critical and popular acclaim, and repeated last night on BBC2.
Adrian Shergold , the play's director, interviewed Clive three times last year; first during the making of the play, then just after the play was shown, and finally last December - the end of an extraordinary year for a young man living with a threatening and incurable illness.
With remarkable frankness, Clive talked of the play and its impact, but also about himself, his life and cancer. 'If by anything I say or convey I can help somebody understand that people with terminal illnesses aren't contagious ... if it makes cancer easier to accept, then it will have been worthwhile.'

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.
