: Australia's Animal Mysteries

This National Geographic
Society film explores Australia, which 50 million years ago broke away from the landmass of Antarctica to become the largest island and smallest continent. In isolation, unique animal life developed. The camera peers into a mysterious world of lyrebirds, wombats, kangaroos, koalas, flying possums, fearsome lizards, vicious Tasmanian Devils and, perhaps oddest of them all, the fur-covered, duck-billed, web-footed platypus.

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.
