: The World About Us

The Insect Man A tribute to
Jean-Henri Fabre (1823-1915) with Ralph Michael as the great French entomologist
At the beginning of the century Fabre was known to thousands of readers for his vivid descriptions of insect behaviour. Among his greatest contributions to science were his studies of the hunting wasps, which paralyse prey for their larvae to feed on in their underground cells. Fabre was an enthusiastic populariser, to whom moaern methods of communication such as radio and television would have had an instant appeal.
This programme takes the form of an imaginary television visit to his home in Provence, in which Fabre talks about his life and work and recreates many of the field experiments which so fascinated his readers years ago. Written by ALAN GIBSON
Devised and produced by CHRISTOPHER PARSONS (from Bristol)

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.
