Millions of people rely on fish stocks, while the ocean is also home to the planet's richest coral reefs and most iconic wildlife. The future of the whales looks secure, for the moment, but international fishing fleets are taking a serious toll on sharks, albatross and tuna. Producer Jonathan Clay ; Series producer Huw Cordey

: Empire of Cricket

3/4. Australia. The story of cricket continues with a look at how Australia has become the best team in the world today. The country's first settlers turned the sport of the privileged English elite into a game for all. By the 1930s, the country had its first real hero - Don Bradman - while Richie Benaud was the young captain who rejuvenated the postwar game in the 1950s. Australian cricket in the 1970s would undergo a revolution; then, in the mid-1980s, the world's first specialist cricket academy was created, further fostering the ruthless desire to win.

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.
