Elsewhere there's an interview with musician John Cale, a debate on films with an end-of-the-world theme, and Martha Wainwright joins Lauren to sing a track from her new album.

5/8; series three. The heat is on in more ways than one for the four remaining couples. As temperatures soar in Bristol, they must sweat it out serving afternoon tea to over a hundred guests. To be a success they have to up their game in presentation, display their baking skills and compete directly against each other. For evening service the couples take bookings from VIP guests, each wanting a three-course meal topped off with a celebratory cake.

Bringing Up Baby. An investigation into the vital bond between animal mothers and their babies.
There are many ways to raise a brood, from the fish that looks after her young in her mouth to the extended childhoods of orangutans. At the heart of the story is emotion. Elephants and monkeys might be expected to show "love" and "grief", but what about penguins or lions? As scientists intensify their studies, it becomes increasingly clear just how emotional animals are. David Attenborough narrates. Producer Mark Rietcher; Series editor Tim Martin RT'S ANIMAL COVER STARS: radiotimes.com/animal-covers

: Wonderland

6/8. Virgin Swimmers. Nine adults are brought together to learn how to swim. Instructor Linda has seen it all before. She knows that most of the women will be petrified of getting their hair and faces wet, the men will be embarrassed by their lack of prowess, and all of them will probably have to conquer demons that run much deeper than a fear of water. After six weeks Linda will lead her proteges to the ultimate test in the big pool. Will it be sink or swim? Director/Producer Lorraine Charker-Phillips

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
