: South Pacific

4/6. Ocean of Volcanos. Millions of years are condensed into an hour of unforgettable images illustrating the birth, growth and death of an island: an underwater volcano erupts; rivers of lava explode below the waves; roads and houses are buried by molten rivers of rock. From these violent beginnings emerge fertile coral reefs, supporting large groups of grey reef sharks and giant manta rays. The rising lands of the South Pacific have also given life to some very strange creatures, from the vampire bug that thrives in tropical snow, to the megapode, a bird that uses volcanic springs to incubate its eggs. Producer Mark Brownlow ; Series producer Huw Cordey
Repeated tomorrow at 7pm Showing in HD on the BBC HD channel on Tuesday at 8pm

: The Incredible Human Journey

4/5. Australia. Miraculously preserved footprints and human fossils buried in the Outback suggest that humans reached Australia thousands of years before they arrived in Europe. How could they have travelled so far from Africa, crossing the open sea? In India, new discoveries among the debris of a super volcano hint that our species started the quest much earlier than previously thought, while in Malaysia genetics point to an ancient trail still detectable in the DNA of tribes today. Dr Alice Roberts also goes in search of the first cavemen of Borneo and tests out a Stone Age raft, before coming to a potent conclusion. Producer Edward Bazalgette ; Producer Paul Bradshaw Showing in HD on the BBC HD channel on Tuesday at 9pm

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.
