The World About Us

Ring of Bright Water and Beyond Gavin Maxwell , 1914-1969 by ALAN CORMACK
Mijbil, Edal and Teko are the otters immortalised in GAVIN MAX WELL'S books. But the man himself was an enigma. On the tenth anniversary of his death this dramatised biography examines Maxwell's life. Poet, portrait painter, naturalist and writer, it was Gavin Maxwell who did so much to gain protection for that shy, elusive, beautiful creature, the otter, and whose books have brought so much happiness to so many people all over the world - but brought tragedy to himself.

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.
