A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Expedition to Chile by Martin Holdgate , Ph.D. of the Department of Zoology. The Durham Colleges, Durham University Many plants and animals are found both in South America and in New Zealand and Tasmania-why, no one is certain. Moreover, the flora and fauna of the world are changing so rapidly as a result of man's activities that precise information about their natural distribution may soon be unobtainable.
Work has already been done on the biology of New Zealand, but Chile has so far been little studied. It is for this reason that the Royal Society is sending an expedition, organised by Dr. Holdgate, to southern Chile later this year.

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.
