: The Birth of Europe

Seven-part documentary series that presents history from an unusual perspective, telling the epic tale of the development of European civilisation from the Stone Age to the present day. Filmed in 18 countries, it explores the extraordinary relationship between the people and the land on which they live. Out of the Ice. The first programme asks where the first Europeans came from, and why? It shows how the Ice Ages swept early humans across the face of the earth in forced migrations. Then,
35,000 years ago, our direct ancestors arrived. Instead of being at the mercy of the environment they began to control the natural world, learning skills upon which all our subsequent history would depend.

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
