: Wildlife on Two

Narrated by David Attenborough
First of three programmes Zen, the Pigtail Monkey
... the monkey that goes to work - on a bike!
Zen's ancestors once roamed wild in the forests of South East Asia. Because of their intelligence and ability to adapt to man, macaque monkey's were trained as actors, and more recently, as travellers in the exploration of space.
This is the story of a more down-to-earth relationship between an animal and his master, in which you can discover how Zen earns his place as a full working member of Mr Tay 's household.

: Glynn Christian's New Zealand

It is 20 years since
Glynn Christian left New Zealand. In this four-part series he returns to his homeland to see what changes have taken place - particularly to the eating habits of New Zealanders.
Land of Milk and Money In this, the second programme of the series,
Glynn Christian visits the south of North Island - home of the famous New Zealand dairy farming industry.
It is here too that the Kiwi fruit flourishes, and Glynn discovers its true versatility as an accompaniment to savoury dishes, and as a sweet wine popular with the Japanese because of its high vitamin C content.
On Lake Taupo he catches rainbow trout which are barbecued with sugar, lemon and herbs for lunch. His journey ends in Wellington with a tour of the meat markets and the chance to taste some new and exotic dishes in a local restaurant.

: The Victorian Kitchen Garden

A series of 13 films in which a walled garden is restored, and worked as it was 100 years ago.
Presented by Peter Thoday with Head Gardener Harry Dodson 7: June
'Flaming June' lives up to its name. Harry is kept busy manipulating the blinds and ventilators of the glasshouses, to protect the emerging tomatoes, cucumbers and melons. Peter shows how the development of the glasshouse allowed the Victorians to grow tropical fruits and flowers hitherto unknown in Britain.
In the garden the bees swarm, and Harry tackles slugs with soot, and wireworm with a carrot.
The briefness of the British summer.... renders the well-kept planthouse a place of most agreeable resort.

Presented by Lewis Wolpert Issues from science today.
Minds, Machines and Minsky Can we build a machine to let our minds live on forever? The founding father of artificial intelligence, research Professor Marvin Minsky, explains how the structure of our minds will one day be replicated. The hardest problem; it seems, won't be our emotions or our souls, but how to give the machine common sense. Growing Concern
Tall people are more successful than short people - we live in a society which appears to reward height. Major drug companies are poised to market synthetic human growth hormone, a drug that's known to make short children grow into taller adults. Should parents be able to buy their children a head start? Lewis Wolpert reports. Research

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.
