And regular presenter Benjamin Woolley introduces Virtual Reality Modelling Language, which promises to transform the look of the Internet as it brings to it the possibility of fully interactive three-dimensional environments. In the final Hotlist feature, Sadie Plant reflects on how, in the on-line world, you can choose to be whoever you want. And the programme pays tribute to its distinguished predecessor, the BBCtv series about computers, Micro Uve.

: The Savage Paradise

Reflections on Elephants
Filming by day and night, Dereck and Beverly Joubert follow a clan of elephants as they lumber across northern Botswana.
This intimate portrait captures moments of tenderness and high drama: adult elephants co-operatingto rescue an infant in peril; a young bull fightingfor its life when attacked by lions; and the orphaned calf, destined to die, being saved by a foster mother with a young calf of her own already.
The sensitivity, memory and ability to communicate and collaborate which is displayed by these creatures leads the Jouberts to draw comparisons between elephants and human beings. Narrated by John Shrapnel. Producer John Sparks

Memory conjures images of cosy food shops where the customer was right, but the reality was often slovenly service, high prices and poor hygiene. Then, in the 1950s, alongcame the American supermarket which introduced giant stores, low prices and free parking.

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.
