Oasis on Sea
The seashore turns to desert when the tide goes out, and rockpools become oases. Fish, prawns, worms, shrimps and sea anemones have perfected their survival techniques to cope.
There are fish that can live out of water, or stick to the rocks like limpets. They all await the new tide - but will they survive that most dangerous of predators - the 9-year-old human with a fishing net?

: Taming the Dragon

A Brass Tacks special
Swords and Ploughshares
On a deserted stretch of the Scottish coastline stands the Dounreay fast reactor, a symbol of Britain's atomic achievement.
To the British government it's an exciting technology that will reward colossal investment with abundant energy in the next century. To critics it's the nuclear dream gone sour. We've been promised cheap electricity from the peaceful use of nuclear energy since the early 1950s. But what is the evidence that the promise has been kept?
In the second film in the series David Taylor investigates what the real value of nuclear power has been, both to the British people and to national security.

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.

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