At Home With Foxes
A film by Eric ASHBY about the private life of one of Britain's most hunted animals
Commentary by Tony Soper
Produced by CHRISTOPHER PARSONS from the South and West
The brown streak of a fox across the countryside with the hounds in full pursuit is as much as most people see of one of Britain's most familiar animals. Because it is hunted so much a fox at its earth is not easily observed; nevertheless, Eric Ashby has succeeded in obtaining remarkable film of fox families in the New Forest. Tonight you can see the fruits of six years of patient watching; how wild foxes really live when they are left alone; and how they hunt when not hunted themselves.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
