: Ray Mears's Extreme Survival

Two contrasting episodes from the series that demonstrate how to survive in some of Earth's most inhospitable places. Arctic and Desert. Ray Mears visits the far north of Sweden in midwinter, where temperatures plummet to -30°C/-22°F, and hears how Bob Thomson survived 48 hours in the Arctic after a plane crash. Five thousand miles south in the Sahara, where daytime temperatures soar to over 45°C/113°F, if something goes wrong it's a life-or-death emergency - situation illustrated by the story of an American bomber lost in the desert in 1943. Producers Paul Watson and Ben Southwell

: Horizon

Parallel Universes. Until recent years, parallel universes were dismissed as material fit only for science-fiction fantasies. Increasingly, however, they are seen by some leading scientists as not just real, but also closer to the Earth than anyone could have imagined, with one parallel universe possibly as little as a single millimetre away.
This documentary tells how three scientists - Neil Turok ,
Burt Ovrut and Paul Steinhardt - came to the conclusion that our universe is one of an infinite number of bubbles in hyperspace that was birthed by the collision of two other parallel universes. Such an idea not only subverts received wisdom on the origins of the world, it also begs the question of whether such a collision could occur again. Producer Malcolm Clark ; Executive editor John Lynch

: Trouble at the Top: Bucks Fizz: Making Your Mind Up

The return of the series that follows business dramas.
Bucks Fizz's Eurovision triumph kick-started three years of chart hits for the quartet, but a road accident, personal tribulations and legal trouble took their toll, and the group's fortunes dwindled. In 1996, lead singer Bobby Gee recruited David Van Day from eighties pop rivals Dollar, little realising how his band would be torn apart. Jim Carter narrates the tale of a feud that led to two rival Bucks Fizz bands touring the country and a judge deciding who owned the group brand. (W)

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.
