: Boswall's Wildlife Safari to Mexico

The first of a new six-part series of zoological exploration. Across the Cactus Desert
The expedition camps for a month in an extraordinary desert where the world's highest temperature was recorded.
Morning, noon and night the animals respond differently to the problems of high temperatures and scanty water. In the early morning black-tailed hares are active. As the sun gets higher, curious lizards appear like the regal horned toad. At noon, there are few creatures to see beside the soaring turkey vulture and grazing pronghorn antelopes. At night, the desert comes alive: elf owls pursuing beetles, rattlesnakes after kangaroo rats, poor-wills catching moths, scorpions and tarantulas waiting for unwary insects.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
