Yellow Trail from Texas
The assault begins in Texas in May. By the time it is finished, five months later, the combine harvesters - hundreds of them - will have chewed their way north for nearly 2,000 miles to the Canadian prairies. The North American wheat harvest must be the biggest farming job in the world. In an hour, each combine can cut enough wheat to keep the average British family in bread for 40 years.
A BBC film team joined one of the harvest crews on their summer journey.

In the Panamanian jungle and the deserts of Arizona the armies of the ants are on the march - raiding and pillaging the insect communities which live in their domain.
The army ants of the rainforests are nomadic killers sweeping in gigantic numbers over the jungle floor, running down and tearing to pieces their unfortunate victims. But the amazon ants of North

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.
