: DOORSTEP SAFARI

In Britain's new Big Game Reserves there are no bars between the public and the animals
4: WHITE HUNTERS OF WILTSHIRE
That there has been no tragic accident since the Longleat Reserve opened is largely due to the Wiltshire White Hunters. These are the Game Wardens. They operate a method of control evolved by Jimmy Chipperfield and Mike Lockyer , his Chief Game Warden, which takes care of the public and the lions. Mike says: 'The public enjoys itself, behaves itself and acts sensibly as the British public usually does. But there are exceptions. We have to be ready for the exceptions.'
Whether protecting the foolhardy or hunting a sick lion with a crossbow, the Game Warden needs skill, courage, and lion lore.

OLYMPIA '36
Leni Riefenstahl introduces sequences from her classic film of the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.
' One of the ten best films ever made,' was the verdict of a Holly-wood Committee. The Venice Biennale of 1938 called it 'the world's best film' and in 1948 it gained for Leni Riefenstahl the Gold Medal of the International Olympic Committee. Less enthusiastic critics have condemned it as ' Nazi Propaganda' and it remains one of the most controversial films in the history of the cinema, as well as a superb piece of sports reporting.

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.
