Polar Bears and Grizzlies: Bears on Top of the World The plight of polar bears is well known, but is it the whole story? Birds and other animals, including grizzly bears, are heading north to take advantage of a warming world. In summer the bears now share overlapping habitats, so both brown and white meet, compete for food and space, and even interbreed. This film focuses on the lives of two families, a brown bear mother with two cubs, and a polar bear parent with one. It's a moving story of wild animals coping with the 21st century. Producer/Editor Mark Fletcher

: Around the World in 80 Faiths

4/8. The Middle East. In a moving and at times disquieting film, the Rev Peter Owen Jones visits the Middle East. In Israel he meets the African-
Americans who have settled in the Holy Land to live by the principles of the Old Testament. He seeks out the Sufi whirling dervishes of Syria, and in northern Iraq tracks down the ancient and obscure Yazidi sect, which has a curious reputation for devil worship. Peter also visits Jerusalem, revered by some as the ultimate city of spiritual power.

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.
