: Dylan Thomas's A Child's Christmas in Wales

Performed by the O'Neil Center National Theater of the Deaf from America
Narrator Sir Michael Redgrave Narrator in deaf sign language Bernard Bragg
' Years and years and years ago, when I was a boy. when there were wolves in Wales, and birds the colour of red-flannel petticoats whisked past the harp-shaped hills, when we sang and wallowed all night and day in caves that smelt like Sunday afternoons in damp fronthouse parlours ... '
DYLAN THOMAS was drawing on his childhood memories in the 1920s when he wrote this evocative account of a child's eye-view of a Welsh family Christmas.

: The World About Us

Following the Tundra Wolf Narrated by ROBERT REDFORD
In a straight race a wolf doesn't have a chance against a caribou; the caribou can reach 40 miles an hour, whereas the wolf can only manage 30. Nevertheless, in the Canadian North-west, wolves live mainly on caribou. So how do they manage? The answer lies in tactics: organisation and ambush.
This film follows the epic spring journey of the caribou to their breeding grounds in the north and the wolves that travel with them. It is the story of the delicate balance between predator and prey. And through remarkable aerial photography it shows just how the balance works.

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.
