: Life on Earth

A rerun of David Attenborough 's series forming The Life Trilogy. 7: Victors of the Dry LandReptiles were the first backboned creatures to solve the problems of living high and dry on the land. Two innovations were vital - the scaly waterproof skin conserved body moisture, and the sealed egg protected the baby reptile inside its own "private puddle". These features enabled the mighty reptiles to rule the world - as the dinosaurs did - and today enable them to survive even on roasting hot lava fields and in burning deserts, where chameleons stalk beetles and lizards dance to keep cool.

: Artists'Journeys

A series of films for the Commissions and Collaborations season in which a contemporary artist visits places which inspired an artist from the past. Eric Fischl on Pierre Bonnard
The work of New Yorker
Eric Fischl , the "bad boy" of American art, depicts psycho-sexual dreams that reveal the darker side of American suburban life. French artist Pierre Bonnard attracted great popularity and admiration - eventually becoming a national hero - for his sunny scenes celebrating bourgeois domestic life.
Fischl examines Bonnard's work from the start of his artistic career in 1889, when he sold a poster to a champagne house. Following in his fellow artist's footsteps, Fischl travels to Paris and Cannes, where he discovers that Bonnard's work became an intensely personal record of a troubled and emotionally tangled relationship and a life full of dark secrets.

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.
