The Day of the Zebra
Narrated by HUGH FALKUS
Zebras are ponies uniquely marked like mint humbugs which helps them in their struggle for survival. Every zebra aims to get through the day alive. They are all engaged in an interlocking system of life and death, of feeding and breeding, because the beauty of the African countryside conceals a streak of necessary beastliness. Each day brings its routine, but also deadly risks. Those surviving at the day's end are the strongest, the fittest to continue the breed. We follow a family of zebras for a day in the Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, and see what they do, where they go, and how they cope with life on the African Plains.

James Herriot
The Vet who Writes Books
Introduced by Melvyn Bragg
In this documentary profile James Herriot talks to Melvyn Bragg about his upbringing in Glasgow, his life in Yorkshire and his work as both vet and writer.
Herriot's second career began only some ten years ago. ' It was my wife who pushed me into it. For 30 years I'd been saying I was going to write a book and one day she turned around and said, " Men of 50 don't write books." That stung me. I went right out and bought a pile of paper and got stuck in.' In 1970 his first novel, If Only They Could Talk, was published. Two years later It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet appeared and this was so successful with readers that letters poured in asking for further instalments. Two of his later stories have been made into popular feature films.
If he wished, he could live from his writing alone, but neither fame nor literary success is his first priority. He still feels as he did on first coming to North Yorkshire: ' It suddenly dawned on me this was the life for me. I am a doctor of farm animals now.'

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.
