Man and Science today
KING SOLOMON'S GARDEN
Animal communication is a little. understood aspect of animal survival. There are a number of well-known reasons why animals survive. How far does their ability to convey messages to one another help them keep their species alive?
This film was made in Kiev in the best Soviet nature film tradition. It contains no experts, only the communicators themselves-birds and bees, ants, fish, and baboons. Their communication systems were in use millions of years before Man evolved his own methods.
King Solomon's Garden is a world of odour, gesture, colour, cries of alarm, and various types of orientation signalling. It is a world that will be slow to give up its secrets, but which is beginning to give up a few of them in response to sensitive recording techniques and patient searches into the group behaviour of animals.
Narrated by Christopher Chataway
Editor, R. W. REID
Presented for television by Jo MARQUAND and Patrick DUCKER

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.
