with Eric Robson
A five-part re-creation of Wainwright's 40-year love affair with Scotland. 3: The Isle of Skye
'I was so anxious to come here that, from about 1947 onwards, when I got a new diary each year I opened it at random and noted
"Have you been to Skye yet?" ' It was another seven years before Wainwright persuaded a friend to bring him.
He was rewarded with the 'finest mountains in Britain'. Now, at 80, 'AW recalls with emotion his first sight of the Black Cuillin, his difficult scramble up Sgurr nan Gillean, and finds this latest visit blessed with rare, perfect weather.

: The Nature of Australia

A portrait of an island continent in six episodes narrated by Robyn Williams 1: A Separate Creation
The flattest, the driest and, with the exception of Antarctica, the most sparsely populated continent,
Australia is the largest island in the world with an area equivalent to the USA.
Nature seems to be turned upside down; some mammals lay eggs, some hop rather than run, swans are black, and the trees shed bark, not leaves.
Australia is a treasure trove of extraordinary wildlife - the platypus, the marsupial kangaroos and koalas, the unique gum trees and vividly coloured parrots. There's nowhere like it in the world.
And yet the key to understanding Australia's uniqueness lies in its origins as part of the ancient supercontinent of Gondwanaland and its drift northwards beneath the Tropic of Capricorn - for
Australia is a continent on the move.

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.
