: Horizon

6/9. Madagascar: a Treetop Odyssey The virgin rainforests of Madagascar support some of the rarest species on Earth - 75 per cent are found nowhere else in the world. Much of this remarkable diversity is found in the forest canopy, which has been virtually inaccessible to scientists - until now. They're using ingenious methods - including a giant inflatable raft and a metal tree house - to explore a potential treasure trove of biochemical resources. Horizon follows their fascinating work - and an expedition that's not without its dangers.

6/10. The Artworld Dodger. Onetime art crook
Michel van Rijn is a reformed character - or so he says. He claims to help repatriate stolen and smuggled antiquities by stinging crooked dealers and betraying former associates. But he's also made allegations against some of the art world's most respectable figures. Can a man with a track record of deception ever be trusted? And are his motives more self-serving than he cares to let on? Producer Ben Anthony ; Executive producers Edmund Couthard and Grant McKee

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
