: Ray Mears's Extreme Survival

It covers an area larger than Britain and France combined, yet frozen Alaska has a population smaller than Bristol.
Although a stranded stranger's chances of survival in this hostile wilderness are slim, extraordinary tales have been recorded, such as the beachcomber who crashed his plane and struggled for ten days before being found by hunters, and the photographer who documented the ordeal of passengers when their ship ran aground in 1910.

: Deathbelt

Leslie Dale Martin, convicted of rape and murder in Lake Charles, Louisiana, has spent ten years awaiting execution on death row. Counsel at his trial were inexperienced and had only six weeks to prepare their evidence. As such, his defence appeared doomed from the outset.
With the execution date just weeks away, British-born human-rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith agreed to review the case to see if there were any grounds to overturn the jury's verdict. Stafford Smith 's record was impressive - out of 300 such cases, he had lost just four in 14 years. But, as this one-off documentary shows, time was not on his side.

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.
