The Swiftlet Caves
Crying snakes that catch bats in the dark; blind white crabs that climb walls like spiders; giant crickets that crack open birds' eggs; and cave swiftlet nests that supply a multi-million-dollar soup industry - all part of the remarkable community of animals living in the world's largest caves in Malaysia. Phil Chapman, of Bristol
Museum, tells of his adventures in the caverns where a foot wrong could mean drowning in a quicksand of water-logged guano.

The Thomas the Tank Engine Man
Thomas, Gordon, Henry and the Fat Controller are just a few of the Railway Series characters who have become near legends in the lifetime of their creator, The Rev W. Awdry. He now lives in retirement from parish work, but his stories chronicling life among the engines on the island of Sodor are as popular with children and their parents today as they were when first published in 1945. In recent years, Thomas's rise to television stardom has introduced a new dimension to the well-loved books. Brian Sibley meets The
Rev W. Awdry and looks at the man behind those really useful engines.

The Artists of Terezin
Terezin (Theresienstadt), in Bohemia, was a ghetto created by the Nazis to deceive public opinion. There were shops, a coffee house and a special bank, while the SS even made a film showing happy Jews in a Jewish city. For the inmates, it was little more than a staging-post for Auschwitz. To propagate the lie, the Nazis permitted a lively cultural life.
Christopher Cook visits Terezin and talks to survivors of the ghetto about art, music and theatre created by artists facing almost certain death.

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.
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.
