: Atlantic Realm

narrated by Martin Jarvis. Into the Abyss
Last of three programmes. Beneath the sunlit ocean surface lies the largest living space on the planet; on average two miles deep, dark, freezing cold, once thought to be lifeless, largely unexplored. Here high-tech submarines reveal not only creatures never seen alive before, but those never seen before!
Unimagined creatures - fish, crabs, and clams, countless hordes of blind shrimps, bask in the hot vents that spout from restless volcanoes.
Elsewhere mussels cluster and thickets of tubeworms and clams live on the natural gas that leaks from oil fields buried below the ocean floor. If the sun stopped shining tomorrow these creatures would live on in their dark world. Photography MICHAEL PITTS

: Simply Mozart

Symphony
The second in a series of musical explorations into three late Mozart works.
Tonight Jeffrey Tate considers Symphony No 39 in E flat major (K 543). How does a conductor discover the right tempo for Mozart? Or achieve a proper balance using 'modern' instruments? Or make the orchestra 'sing'? Following the workshop, Jeffrey Tate conducts a performance of what he calls 'this gloriously witty, optimistic work'.
With the English Chamber Orchestra, led by JOSE-LUIS GARCIA.

: Three-Minute Culture

Design: Rodney Fitch
Design is crucial to the three-minute culture. Retailers will spend millions to fix their products and identities in our minds. It's the designer's role to capture the essence of the new and pass it on to the public before it withers into the old.
Michael Ignatieff explores the throw-away decade through the eyes of six leading players.
This week he talks to Rodney Fitch , chairman of Fitch and Co who says: 'Not all design is about classics. A lot of it is for the here and now and if things go out of fashion, so much the better, because they won't be appropriate in the future'.

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.
