The Long Dark Journey Back with Andrew Sachs Barry Paine and Deborah-Jane Sharpe
The life story of the common eel written by PAUL THOMAS
The eel swims out of a Devon river and into mystery. It started as a small leaf in the Sargasso, shrank to a tiny glass elver off the Cornish coast, turned yellow on its journey up streams and across wet fields to Dartmoor, and seven years later transformed into a silver eel for the 5,000 km journey back to the Sargasso. How and why does it travel so far, in salt water and fresh, in order to feed on one side of the Atlantic and spawn on the other?

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.
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.
