Part 1
In the late 1960s, the Brazilian government decided that it preferred cows to trees.

As well as killing off many rare species of plant, are the Brazilians attacking what were once called the 'world's lungs' -one of the major sources of oxygen for the southern hemisphere?
In the first of two programmes, Anthony Smith reports from the cattle farms of Brazil, and asks: What Has Happened to the Forests'

When Did You Last See Your Father? by SARAH MAXWELL
New York in a heatwave. The temperature is 98 degrees and the electricity workers are on strike. If you have a dead body on your hands it is best to bury it as quickly as possible. But it is important to know the identity of the deceased and if Angle's father isn't Angie's father - then who is he?

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.
