: Operation Raleigh

The Village.... and When Men Move It
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 second in a series of six, is made by a team from the National Film School.
The children of Puelo, a remote village in southern
Chile, can't understand why a team of 11 'Ingleses' has come half-way round the world to dismantle their school and move it three miles up the road.
At first the 'Ingleses' aren't too clear either.
Their story is told by a young engineer on London's
Underground; for him and his friends there comes a fulfilment they've not experienced before.... Filmed by MOLLY DINEEN and ARIEL PILUSO

: Nature

From Atomic Power to Zoos A hard look at the world around us with Michael Buerk and reporters John Howard and Linda MitcheU
Hares, foxes, mink and deer - every year thousands are killed legally and openly in the name of sport. But what motivates the hunters? And do their opponents - the saboteurs - flirt with lawbreaking?
Nature spent a weekend with a young hunter and a young saboteur examining views on either side of Britain's most controversial pastime. What is the connection between a Mediterranean palm tree, the Vietnam War, and a serene English butterfly farm?
The answer is in this week's episode of Nature. Studio director

: Exiles

Josef Skvorecky
Czechoslovakian Novelist The tragi-comic novels of Josef Skvorecky have brought him world-wide acclaim.
He has lived under every conceivable political system. In one lifetime he has witnessed and written about the Nazi occupation of 1940, the Stalinist clampdown of the 1950s, the optimism of the Prague Spring and the final moment of disillusionment and exile in 1968. In this film he remembers the extraordinary chequered pattern of his life, and returns also to one of his first loves, the bass saxophone.

: On Earth as It Is in Heaven

The treasure of the Russian
Orthodox Church, 1,000 years old this week, is the celebration of the Liturgy. Orthodox believers regard the splendour of the worship, as a foretaste of heaven on earth.
Tonight's celebration comes from the Moscow Church of the Resurrection. The celebrant is
Metropolitan Pitirim of Volokolamsk, assisted by one of Russia's finest church choirs.

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.
