: South Pacific

5/6. Strange Islands. Flightless parrots, burrowing bats, giant skinks and kangaroos in trees - on the isolated islands of the South Pacific, the wildlife has evolved in extraordinary ways. But island-living can carry a high price, for when new species arrive, all hell breaks loose. And there lies a puzzle: why do creatures perfectly adapted to island life simply give up the ghost? The answer is revealed through the remarkable stories of some unlikely animals that survived on tiny islands off the coast of New Zealand. Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch. Producer Jonathan Clay ; Series producer Huw Cordey
Repeated tomorrow at 7pm Showing in HD on the BBC HD channel on Tuesday at Bpm

: Empire of Cricket

2/4. West Indies. The story of the game of cricket moves on to the only Test-playing nation that represents more than one country. West Indian cricketing heroes, from Learie Constantine and Frank Worrell to Garry Sobers and Viv Richards, have always understood that their achievements on the field could help inspire and define an idea of West Indian identity beyond the boundary. Cricket clubs across the Caribbean once operated a kind of sporting apartheid, with white players alone allowed to captain the national team. But in the 1920s, all-rounder Constantine emerged to challenge this.
Producer Francis Welch ; Series producer Alastair Laurence Highlights of the cricket World Twenty20 tournament can be seen tonight at 11.15pm on BBC1 and tomorrow at 11.20pm on BBC2

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.
