: The Natural World

Vanishing Pools of the Zambezi. The old meanderings of Africa's Zambezi river have created numerous watering holes in the Mana Pools National Park, and herds of elephant, buffalo, eland and impala gather around them to graze on the soft green grass. But once the short rainy season ends and in the long dry season that follows, the grass withers and the pools turn to mud, forcing the animals that live in and around them into a perennial i conflict as they try to satisfy their food and water needs.

: Moral Combat - Nato at War

One year after Nato's bombing campaign, Allan Little takes a challenging look at the reasons for the war in Kosovo, examining why - and how - the west used force to pursue I what was outwardly presented as a moral crusade i against ethnic cleansing. In fact, he argues, it was an act of revenge on Slobodan Milosevic and was prompted in part by guilt over the west's failure to intervene in time in Bosnia. The west, he says, made a series of near-catastrophic miscalculations and the air campaign was not simply about defeating Milosevic but about saving the credibility of the Nato alliance. See Choice.

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.
