: Life on Earth

A natural history by David Attenborough
The story of life from the first primitive cells to the plants and animals that now live around us. A series of 13 programmes 9: The Rise of the Mammals
The mammals have proved to be one of the most adaptable products of evolution. Their ancestry can be traced back nearly 200-million years to the beginning of the dinosaur era when the first furry warm-blooded creatures scurried around the forest floor at night while the mighty reptiles slept.
As time went by, female mammals evolved ways of keeping their babies warm and nourished. Early ones may have laid eggs like the platypus does today. Later forms evolved pouches, placentas and milk-producing organs and so provided for their young more comprehensively than any other kind of creature.
An accident of continental drift enabled the marsupials to flourish in Australia and produce such diverse animals as gliding possums, koalas and kangaroos. Elsewhere, the placental mammals ruled.

Investigates, Discovers, Questions This week:
Thieves on Wheels
The motor car is a push-over for the amateur thief, a dead cert for the professional; this most expensive of possessions - after a house - is protected with the cheapest of locks. Nearly 1,000 cars are stolen every day in Britain and it's getting worse.
On film, Michael Dean follows the trail of these missing cars and talks to a smoothly efficient ' retired' car thief, bewildered victims, unperturbed manufacturers, frustrated policemen and teenage joy-riders. In the studio, Nick Ross asks the experts - a top policeman, the editor of Motoring Which, and a man from the motor trade -how do we stop the stolen car epidemic ...?

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.
