Weather followed by Into Africa
Narrator Anthony Hopkins Every year, like birds migrating south, a few hundred men take to the air and fly to Africa - in the spirit of the first aviators, for the pleasure of living dangerously. Their job? To seed thunderclouds, spray locusts, dust crops and fly emergency missions from the roughest of strips.
'It must be the last frontier of true flying,' they say, 'real seat-of-the-pants stuff - low, fast, dangerous.' For men like Abercromby-Dick,
Max Lacey and Paddy McKay it's the only way to live. Producer NADIA HAGGAR Series editor TIM SLESSOR

: Out of the Doll's House

A series of films exploring the way women's lives have changed in the 20th century. Jobs for the Girls
'A woman should stop at home and look after her family. You can't expect her to go out and build a house or go out with machines and dig the road.'
That's the controversial view of 96-year-old Rose Ashton who began work as a domestic servant in 1905. Rose, her daughter, grand-daughter and great grand-daughter help tell the story of women at work from that time to this.
When Rose started work there were few jobs women were allowed to do and married women were not expected to work at all.
Today nearly two-thirds of married women work and there is not much a woman will not turn her hand to. Producer OLIVIA LICHTENSTEIN Series producer

: One Day....

An intimate view from dawn till night of one person's day. Michael Drummond
The homeless male ends up walking the streets. Some beg for pennies or lie, cheat and steal. Some look for work, others for booze or a fix, but all hope. The hope is a simple one - a room of their own.
For Michael Drummond that hope has been a way of existing for years, not just One Day ...

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.
