: Nobody Knows Where the Turtle Goes

Presented by Anthony Smith
Where do baby turtles disappear for a year after hatching? Why do adult turtles travel thousands of miles from feeding grounds to the tropical beaches where they lay eggs; and how do they find their way under the sea? Sea turtles, unchanged for millions of years, have been a mystery to scientists for centuries.

: The Last Emperor

What Parliament can make. Parliament can unmake ' had been the prophetic comment when Disraeli made Victoria Empress of India in 1887. And so it proved: in August 1947 Parliament ' unmade ' the fourth heir to Victoria's Imperial line, George vi.
As a group captain Peter Townsend served George vi for eight years and was with him during the very period when his Empire was unmade. But Peter Townsend's involvement with the Empire started with his birth in Burma to a family who had served their Emperors for two generations. He traces the evolution of Empire into Commonwealth during the years when he was equerry to the last Emperor. Producer HELEN FRY

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.
