: Mountain

3/5. Two hundred years ago, the Central Highlands of Scotland were considered the "badlands of Britain"; a no-go area for anyone except clansmen. Today over 100,000 people climb Ben Nevis each year. Griff Rhys Jones explains how the Victorians spotted the region's potential and used large-scale landscape gardening to convert this wild, windswept area into a romantic retreat. Since then, tourism in the mountains has boomed with the discovery of ever more ingenious ways to play in the mountains, from the traditional game of shinty, to races up Ben Nevis and dog-sledding on the Cairngorms.

: Dan Cruickshank's Adventures inArchitecture

8/a The historian concludes his journey with a look at how buildings have given pleasure to their creators, as well as the people who continue to use them, from the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, a palace by the ocean that spectacularly fuses East and West. to Germany's
Schloss Neuschwanstein, a fantasy castle created by one of history's most outrageous monarchs, King Ludwig II. A trip to the oldest brothel in the world evokes the hedonism of Pompeii, but an opera house in the Amazon rainforest is not all good news for the region's people. Plus the Italian country house where mathematics was used to create perfect architecture. Directors/Producers John Hay , John Mullen , Helen Nixon and Nicola Seare Signed rpt next week on BBC1 (HD)

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.
