The Countryside
Come forth into the light of things
Let Nature be your teacher.
(WORDSWORTH)
You may well feel that you can enjoy the pleasures of the countryside without knowing much about the birds and bees, the plants and trees and flowers, and the rich diversity of animal life on land and water. But if you do want to know more, you can put your question to naturalists Judy Poore and Ted Ellis in the Tuesday Call studio.
In the Chair Sue MacGregor Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

A Chinese Errand by HUGH BAKER
Read by Allan McClelland
' The first row of stalls in those c'ays was where all the fortune-tellers sat ... but the kind I liked best were the ones where a little* bird took your fortune for you out of a pack of fortune-papers. Well, it stands to reason that birds know more about these things than people - they fly nearer heaven, don't they? '

Peking Zoo
Founded in 1906 as the ' Garden of Ten Thousand Animals ' by the Empress Dowager Tz'u-hsi, Peking Zoo today is noted for its large collection of rare Asian species. The zoo knows more about Giant Pandas than does any other zoo, and so far it is the only establishment to have witnessed a Giant Panda birth.
Anthony Smith, recently one of the annual four million visitors, gives his impressions of the zoo, and describes some of the animals not seen in captivity anywhere else in the world.

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.
