: Operation Raleigh

Spring in Fiordland
Tonight's film, the fourth in this series of six, is made by a team from the London
International Film School.
Fiordland in the South Island of New Zealand is one of the most remote and spectacular mountain areas of the world. This natural history film, based on Operation Raleigh research and shot in just six weeks, follows the spring meltwaters from alpine peaks through rainforest to the sea. Tree ferns, honey eaters, strange lichens, mountain parrots, the flightless takahe and, of course, the kiwi are all part of this idyllic setting. Directed and edited by TREVOR DE KOCK
Series producer BELINDA ALLEN

: Nature

From Atomic Power to Zoos with Michael Buerk and reporters John Howard and Linda Mitchell
In 50 years there will be two million tonnes of unwanted nuclear waste stored throughout Britain. Though the exact locations of such dumps are undecided, their choice will cause a major political row. The Government's public consultation period ends next week, but will its options be any clearer? And the conflict between beauty and cruelty: should fur coats made from animals caught in leg-hold traps carry a warning label? Alan Clark ,
Minister of Trade, says 'yes'. The Canadian Government says 'no'.

: Exiles: Edward Said, Palestinian Academic

Born in Jerusalem in 1935, Edward Said now lives in New York with his wife and two children. He is currently Professor of Comparative Literature at Columbia University. Educated in Palestine, Egypt, Lebanon and the United States, he is one of America's most distinguished literary scholars and critics. Apart from his academic work, Said's great preoccupation is the story of his homeland and his dispossessed people. He is a member of the Palestine National Council and a supporter of the PLO. Totally opposed to the use of violence for political ends,
Said puts his argument for a just settlement to the Palestinian question.

: Edgar Reitz's 'Heimat'

'Heimat'is the memory of the fundamental first impressions somebody has: from his family, from the place of his birth, from his childhood.
The title of Edgar Reitz 's epic film does not translate adequately, but his 15 1/2-hour narrative of German rural life since 1919 has earned critical acclaim in every country where it has been shown.
Russell Davies talks to Edgar Reitz about the autobiographical inspiration of Heimat, and how the making of the film marked a return to his native region of the Hunsriick after a long - but necessary - absence.

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.
