A weekly series
Introduced by Johnny Morris with Keith Shackleton
The World of Animals
In the wild, in the zoo, at home: a magazine of stories about animals constantly illustrating their own kind of magic
Director, DAVID KENNARD
Producer, DOUGLAS THOMAS from the South and West
It's nature's food, and it's free! It's in great demand by cows, deer, zebras, buffaloes, and gnus, but Keeper Johnny Morris found that grass was a particularly delightful tit-bit for, of all things, the hippo.
Keith Shackleton found something out of the ordinary too-the beautiful Mandarin duck, which he sketched as it swam on a lake near Chippenham.

It is New Year's Eve and Taff is killing time in a dockside pub before getting the train home to Wales. He talks to the barman, and meets two girls. They eat, drink and dance, but by the end of the play this very ordinary young man has been turned into a snarling, bewildered animal by one of the girls. Why has she done this ?

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 from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
