: Exploration at Wookey Hole

At Wookey Hole there is an interesting series of caves, which are partially unexplored. There are six chambers. The river Axe flows through the first and second, appearing to issue in the third, from the solid rock. In fact, it comes out of a submerged archway, giving the only access to the other three chambers.
The fourth and fifth of these can be reached when the river is low. In the sixth, and last, the actual source of the river is probably to be found.
At 10.30 listeners will be guided by a commentator through the first three caves to the entrance to the fourth. There a diver, Graham Balcombe , will enter the water and make his way to the fourth, fifth, and finally to the mysterious sixth chamber.
When he arrives there, by means of a microphone in his helmet, he will, it is hoped, describe what he sees, so that listeners will actually share in his exploration of an unknown fraction of underground England.

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.
