Wolves of the Sea
For David Parer and Liz
Parer-Cook, a three-year mission to film the fearsome killer whale was not without its drama. David and his equipment had to be dragged from the water when a female killer with calf headed straight for him, while ten months into the project Liz became pregnant.
The killers were named Orcas
- or Wolves of the Sea - by early whalers because they hunt in packs. These packs were filmed gorging herrings - 90 kilograms per day - and dramatically taking penguins and seal pups. The narration is by David Attenborough.

: Broken Lives

Divorce in 18th-century England was virtually impossible - only one or two were granted each year. It required three costly and complex lawsuits, including a private act of Parliament, and you were rarely allowed to marry again.
This programme is one of a trilogy on divorce being shown this week as part of the Year of the Family. It provides three accounts of divorce and marital breakdown from historian
Lawrence Stone 's book Broken
Lives, including the tale of the unfortunate Duke of Beaufort, who had to prove his sexual prowess in the divorce court when his wife claimed their marriage wasn't consummated.
They have been dramatised by Louise Page and interwoven with interviews. Douglas Hodge , Lynsey Baxter , John Benfield , Maggie Steed , Tom Mannion and Jenny Galloway play different roles in each story. Director Vanessa Engle
Executive producer Janice Hadlow

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.
