Kopje - a Rock for All Seasons Granite islands set in the Serengeti's rolling ocean of grassland called 'kopjes' are a lair for lions and cheetahs.
Huge trees, secret pools and a wealth of plants hide and feed the curious hydraxes, the acrobatic agama lizards, and giraffes, klipspringers and huge eagles. Such animals endure even the driest of seasons here.

It is 20 years since
Glynn Christian left New Zealand. In this series he returns to his homeland to see what changes have taken place. 3: Oh! To Be in England....
Glynn Christian crosses the notorious Cook Straits from Wellington to Picton and explores the north of South Island.
Home of the famous apple industry, Glynn discovers that in New Zealand the apple can be used as an ingredient for more than the customary apple pie or crumble.
After visiting Chnstchurch - 'the most English city outside Britain', he moves on to the Canterbury Plains. Here on the Burden Sheep Farm he tries his hand at shearing before helping to prepare an enormous barbecue - in which traditional dishes hve been improved with New Zealand innovations.

: Top Gear

Britain's motorway network seems constantly clogged by road repairs.
William Woollard asks why the surfaces need rebuilding so frequently, and looks at an alternative way of funding road repairs being tried out in Arizona.
Also in America Chris Goffey reports on a glimpse into the future shape of the car, through the eyes of design students at Detroit's Centre of Creative Studies.
What was it like to race motor cars at the turn of the century? The first car to carry the British Racing Green, a Napier, has just returned to Britain, and Tiff Needell test-drives it over the tracks and lanes round its new home at Beaulieu. In the car of the decade series, it's the 50s and a car whose shape and engineering would make it remarkable

Tonight, the first of two films with the Romeos, a crack customs cocaine target team, to be shown on consecutive nights.
Months of painstaking intelligence gathering lead to a crucial break for the Romeos - a courier, recruited in Spain, is to make a cocaine run from South America and Operation Renaissance is born. Surveillance by hidden cameras follows the target's departure from Heathrow and, a week later, the Romeos lie in wait for his return. The courier's suitcase is a Samsonite - the Red Sammy ...

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.

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