: Operation Raleigh

The Mountain
For most young people an Operation Raleigh expedition is a chance to live and work with remote communities all over the world. For a few, it provides an opportunity to make a film.
Tonight's film, the first in a series of six, is made by a team from the National Film
School. It follows a young engineer from London's
Underground who leads a team up a glacier in the mountains of southern Chile. He has never been out of England before; the contrast between his normal urban life and these totally alien surroundings gives him a very different perspective on life: 'Ealing to Cockfosters - no problem. But how do they expect me to find a route up a mountain?'

: Nature

From Atomic Power to Zoos with Michael Buerk and reporters John Howard and Linda Mitchell
Britain is on the brink of a farming revolution. As the food mountains get higher pressure grows to set land aside for golf courses and nature reserves. How are
Britain's farmers responding? And are they environmental villains - as some pressure groups claim - or protectors of the countryside?
This week's Nature includes a debate on the ethics of intensive farming from the Royal Bath and West Show with Desmond Morris and Chris French , Vice-President of the National Farmers Union.

: Exiles

A series featuring six major artists and writers who live and work in exile.
1: Erich Fried: Austrian PoetIn Austria and Germany
Erich Fried is a hero. He is their most famous living poet and a popular if controversial broadcaster. Fried has lived in North London since 1938 when the Nazis invaded his country and destroyed his family. He still writes only in German; his powerful and compassionate poems bear witness to half a century of European culture and politics. In the programme, Fried returns to the Vienna of his childhood and visits East and West Berlin. Neal Ascherson , the Observer's correspondent in Berlin in the 60s, assesses the relevance of his poetry to what Fried sees as the never-ending battle against the re-emergence of fascism.

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.
