: Making It Formal

The difficult thing ...is to turn the real world into algebra. John Maynard Smith ,
Professor of Biology at the University of Sussex, is as much concerned with the evolution of behaviour as with that of form. He discusses with Lewis Wolpert of the Middlesex Hospital Medical School, London, how this enables him to combine three of the things which delight him most: watching animals, doing sums, and discovering that a piece of mathematics actually tells you something about the things you see while birdwatching.

: Five Letters from an Eastern Empire

by ALASDAIR GRAY
4: Bohu is persuaded to delay his official suicide for a week, to taste the delights of ordinary life. He ends by composing an anti-epic, bitterly attacking the emperor. The poem is passed to the hands of a top civil servant, who realises that the poem can be subverted to suit the emperor's purpose admirably. Read by Martin Jarvis and Dinsdale Landen

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.

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.
