: Million Dollar Pigeon

Documentary film-maker Morgan Matthews follows British pigeon fanciers to the most lucrative event of its kind - the Million Dollar Pigeon Race in South Africa. En route, he explores an obsession that was, until recently, moribund but can now see birds selling for over £100,000. This is partly due to the emergence of a new style of competition known as "one loft" racing, which allows breeders from around the world to enter the same event for big cash prizes. But despite this renaissance, the threat of bird flu looms large over the pigeon-fancying community. Director Morgan Matthews Moment of the week: page 59

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.
