: Charley Boorman: Ireland to Sydney by Any Means

New series 1/6. The gritty Long Way Round adventurer will ultimately ditch his beloved motorbike as he tackles a daring three-month journey from Ireland to Australia, taking in three continents, 25 countries and over 20,000 miles. He will utilise more than 100 different local means of transport, while avoiding commercial airlines wherever possible. For this first stage however, the bike is to the fore as he leaves his home town of Wicklow and heads north to the shores of Kilkeel.

: Earth: the Climate Wars

New series 1/3. The Battle Begins. In the 1970s the world seemed to be falling apart; from acid rain to overpopulation, ecological concerns were to the fore. It was at this time that climate change first became a hot political issue. But it wasn't global warming that frightened scientists, it was the complete opposite - a new ice age. Dr lain Stewart traces the history of climate change research from its beginning, and examines just how the scientific community managed to get it so wrong. Director/Producer Jonathan Renouf

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.
