: The Money Programme

This year, for the first time, Britain went into the red in earnings from service industries. Unfortunately for the economy this looks as if it is not just a blip but the result of fundamental flaws in industries like banking, finance, insurance and tourism. Can these flaws be eradicated or will British trade end up permanently overdrawn?

: The Natural World

Paradise Reclaimed
In northern Costa Rica is a tiny patch of a very strange tropical jungle. It's a dry forest of the kind that once covered most of Central
America, India and Australia. This is the stomping ground of Professor Dan Janzen.
Turning traditional conservation ideas upside down, he has set about weaving a huge dry-forest national park out of a patchwork of ranches and farms with a few clumps of trees.
Undaunted by a tangle of tropical natural history baffling to most naturalists, Janzen pursued both its biological secrets and the American dollar. Now he has the knowledge, money and land he needs to create
Guanacaste National Park.
Narrated by Tom Conti.

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.
