: The Natural World: The Riddle of the Sands

The Ythan estuary, 20 kilometres from Aberdeen, is one of the most inhospitable spots in the British Isles. But despite a cruel climate, the area teems with life. What could be the attraction for the hordes of eiderducks, wading birds, fish and seals that descend on this outpost? The answer lies in the shifting sands. The most detailed study of its kind ever undertaken reveals a thriving microscopic world within the tidal sands and mud. All the species here - humans included - are interlinked in a complex "web of life" maintaining nature's delicate balance.

: Fallen Champ: the Untold Story of Mike Tyson

Former undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is set to be released soon from Indianapolis Correctional Facility after serving three years for rape.
As Tyson prepares to rejoin US society, here is another chance to see the documentary by Academy Award-winning Barbara Kopple, first shown in the Fine Cut series, tracing his meteoric rise and equally dramatic fall. The programme features rare footage covering the period from when pugilistic mentor and father-figure Cus D'Amato took the shy 15-year-old under his wing to when the 25-year-old was convicted and sentenced to six years in jail.
In the ring his destructive intent was unrivalled but this film shows how, unable to divorce the violence of combat from his personal life, he succumbed to the darker side of his nature and became prisoner.


Director: Barbara Kopple

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.
