: Wildlife Showcase

A series of eight programmes featuring natural history films from around the world. 3: Puffins
Everyone has heard of the puffin - the 'cuddly toy' of the bird world. Puffins can never fail to amuse. But this little sea bird is not just a pretty face - it is a tough and intrepid survivor.
This rare and beautifully observed film captures the action and the drama which is quite normal for this fascinating bird. After spending the winter out in the Atlantic, they return each spring to the cliffs of Hermaness in the Shetlands. It is here that they breed and rear their young, and run the gauntlet of avian pirates, like the great skuas, who wait on the wing to mug parent birds as they return home laden with fish for their young. Filmed and directed by IAN MCCARTHY

: A Good Sport

Continuing a season of films specially made for television. Tonight starring Ralph Waite Lee Remick
Tommy O'Bannon is a well-known New York sports columnist and committed bachelor - especially since his divorce.
At lunch, he meets attractive and witty Michelle Tenney to whom he takes an instant dislike - after all she despises football, and that in Tommy's book is a major sickness.
But strong feelings of dislike are sometimes known to mellow into friendship and even love. Tommy O'Bannon wouldn't let that happen - would he?

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.
