Echoes of Extinction
The huia was an astonishing bird: the male and female looked so different that they were once thought to belong to separate species. The moa, another New Zealand bird, was also remarkable, flightless and standing up to ten feet in height. And what do huias and moas have in common? They've both become extinct but in the fairly recent past, so that we still have recorded memories of how they looked and sounded. Introduced by DEREK JONES

: My Darling Pussy

The Letters of Lloyd George and Frances Stevenson (1913-41) ' It frightens me, cariad, when I realise how you are all in all to me, and how nothing, nothing in the world matters to me but you. Is it not a terrible thing to have staked your all on one person? But I know that person is mine, and that he Is my father and lover and brother and friend.''
For 30 years David Lloyd George had a double life. He spent much of his time with his wife and family, but even more with Frances Stevenson , his secretary and mistress. Their secret was respected during Lloyd George 's lifetime and so the letters provide a unique record of the relationship between two remarkable people.
A. J. P. Taylor introduces a selection from this fascinating correspondence which has recently been published for the first time.

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.
