: Miniature Worlds

Down in the Duckpond
A family of ducklings follow their mother down to the pond - an idyllic scene. But under the surface lurks a whole bestiary of miniature monsters: a hair-like creature without eyes or mouth, a beast armoured in living shells, and a bloated bloodsucker that swallows prey as large as itself....

: Top Gear

Surrounded by the glories of Britain's motoring past at the Heritage Motor Museum,
Syon Park, William Woollard introduces a new feature - the Top Gear Car of the Decade - and road tests nine cars with a claim to be the most significant designs of their decade.
In the first test, the programme looks at the original 1906 Rolls Royce
Silver Ghost, a car that set a standard of excellence in engineering that has been a benchmark for designers ever since.
Ten pre-1915 Rolls Royces were among the 26 veteran cars that set out on a 2,500 mile tour of Britain earlier this summer. Sue Baker viewed E2 million worth of machinery at Stratford-Upon-Avon, and learnt a little about the American owners prepared to risk their venerable vehicles on Britain's congested roads.
Frank Page has been sifting through viewers' suggestions on how to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists on rural roads, and visits Water End in Hertfordshire to illustrate how some of them might work in practice.
Chris Goffey tests Toyota's new family saloon out this autumn. Top Gear asks Alan and Lynne Broom and their four daughters to put the Corolla through its paces in their native Wales. Producer KEN POLLOCK

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.
