: Life on Earth

A rerun of David Attenborough 's series forming The Life Trilogy. The Compulsive Communicators Humans have had the greatest impact on planet earth, and our emergence has been relatively rapid. Are humans something of a miracle standing apart from the rest of creation?
In the last of the Life on Earth series, David Attenborough traces back for crucial clues that help to explain how and why we have come to dominate life on earth.
He begins at a point nearly three million years ago when human ancestors existed as "ape people". His evolutionary journey takes him to caves in southern France where Stone
Age people created imaginative paintings of Ice Age animals, and then on to Papua New Guinea to find the Biami, a society of hunter-gatherers who have never before seen white people.

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.
