: Inura the Dingo

The spectacular central desert of Australia provides the backdropforthis animal drama. Inura is a youngfemale dingo strugglingto survive in one of the harshest environments on earth where the neighbours can be distinctly unfriendly and fights with competing packs of dingoes can be savage.
As Inura hones her hunting techniques and struggles to find sufficient food and water, her adventures lead to encounters with huge lizards and biting centipedes. And with prey hard to come by, an extraordinary relationship develops between the dingoes and the wedge-tailed eagles, leading to previously unfilmed encounters between dog and bird. Narrated by John King. DirectorSimon King; Producer John King

: A Very Social Democrat

A Portrait of Roy Jenkins
Roy Jenkins 's friends claim he is the best Prime Minister Britain never had.
His enemies say that he betrayed his Labour roots as the son of a Welsh miner. Lord Jenkins is a man of many lives: author, politician and socialite. He was the Home Secretary credited with helping to create the permissive society in the sixties with the legalisation of abortion and homosexual acts. He became an austere Chancellor of the Exchequer blamed by some for Labour's
General Election defeat, the first British
President of the European Commission and foundingfather of the SDP. And he has also enjoyed an unexpectedly colourful private life.
Reporter Michael Cockerell 's candid portrait reveals a more interesting and complex figure than is suggested by the public image of the snobbish, claret-loving "Woy".

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.

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.
