: Go Birding

The third in a series of six films which explore the achievements and fascination of practical bird-watching with Tony Soper.
Movement and Migration
We now know that swallows don't spend the winter at the bottom of pools as was once thought - they fly to Africa, just as geese which breed in the Arctic winter, spend the winter here. Some birds even migrate to special places, where they can moult. The comings and goings of birds - which way they go, how long it takes them, how long they live for - are well known, thanks to the efforts of bird-ringers. But there is still a lot more to learn. Producers GEORGE INGER and ROBIN PRYTHERCH BBC Bristol

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.
