: WILD NEW WORLD

A new film series by HEINZ Sielmann Commentary by Peter Scott
Five programmes about the wildlife of the New World, ranging from the snow and ice of the Canadian Arctic and Alaska to the tropical luxuriance of the Florida Everglades.
3: BERING SEA
Chartering a small seaplane at Anchorage, Alaska, wildlife cameraman Heinz Sielmann strikes westwards across snow-covered mountains to the fringe of the misty Bering Sea. This bleak region is the haunt of the sea lion, fur seal, and sea otter. Among herds of huge sea lions and seals, Sielmann's camera records their individual and family life. Sea otters are rare, but close-up film of these agile, intriguing animals is rarer still.
Filmed and directed by Heinz Sielmann
Produced by BBC-tv in association with Norddeutscher Rundfunk
Presented by Nicholas Crocker from the South and West

: SOFTLY, SOFTLY

Bird of Passage by ALLAN PRIOR
Script editor, Arnold Yarrow Designer, Moira Tait
Producer, LEONARD LEWIS
Directed by MICHAEL Currer-Briggs
Mae Martin , the wife of a convict, is nearly destitute one week-a week later she is staying at a luxury hotel. At the same hotel is Tommy Raven , whose criminal specialities have earned him the nickname of ' Tommy the Sailor.' There is no apparent connection between them-Mae is occupied in entertaining an acquaintance from the Channel Islands, Tommy is occupied with a projected sea trip. They are never seen together, they never acknowledge each other. But the previous week Chief Inspector Watt did see them together-in Mae's own flat. Watt sifts these circumstances and finds two constant factors-crime and the sea. But what sort of crime?

: PEOPLE IN CONFLICT

The unmarried mother is made into a sort of scapegoat for everybody's feelings about their own sex life. The unmarried mother has intercourse outside marriage, but she's not blamed for that. She's blamed because she's produced a child and produced evidence of her behaviour and this is why she gets the blame. The man is hardly blamed.

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.
