Back and Monterey Pop. The 17 songs performed in this classic Bowie concert include such favourites as Ziggy Stardust, Oh You Pretty

: Wideworld

A World That Watches
In the second of two award-winning anthropological films about the Koyukon people, the tribe emerges from the long cold winter. By June, the river has melted, the midges are swarming. The Alaskan summer has arrived; nature is alive again - and watching.
The signs of renewal draw the Koyukon together - to give thanks. They combine a simple Christianity with a traditional belief in an omnipotent nature. For them, nature is not so much governed by God, nature is God.
Summer is a busy time; fishing, gathering berries, visiting friends and, above all, hunting for meat to store for the winter. But, by mid-
September, the willows are turning a brilliant yellow, the geese are flying south, the air has an edge.
Winter is blowing in again. Narrated by John Ridgway. Produced and filmed by MARK BADGER

: Notes in the Margin 1980-89

How will the 80s be understood in 30, 40, 50 years time? Six personal guesses at how future generations may interpret the last ten years. Bringing Up Daddy
The image-makers of the last decade offered us the 'new man', cradling a tiny babe in his musclebound arms; the macho man with the marshmallow centre. But does the image reflect reality? Author Angela Phillips argues that the 80s obsession with work and money has kept men away from their families. The 1980s has put fatherhood in the picture. But for an ever increasing number of children a picture is all there is - their daddy isn't home.

The latest Frank Cvitanovich film follows the bizarre story of a husband and wife who boldly decide to start up an airline. Suckling Airways, the UK's smallest international airline, has one 20-seater plane and operates two daily flights from Cambridge to Manchester and Amsterdam.
Staff are on first-name terms with passengers, in-flight meals are prepared at home, and air hostesses must be under five foot three,
'otherwise they would end up with a back problem!'

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.
