A selection of outstanding feature-length travel and adventure films reflecting man's curiosity in the world around him
This week:
No Room for Wild Animals
Produced and directed by MICHAEL GRZlMEK
Michael Grzimek based the film on the book of the same title by his father, Dr. Bernard Grzimek. Both book and film are pleas for the preservation of the diminishing wildlife of Africa.
This film involved Michael Grzimek in a heavy personal sacrifice in order to raise money for its production, but it eventually won a first prize at the 1956 Berlin Festival, as well as two Golden Bear awards. Grzimek used his share of the profits for further work in Africa. He embarked on a long programme of research on the migration of the large herds of animals in the Serengeti, and it was on completion of this work that he was killed, when his light plane collided with a vulture. He was only twenty-four, but tonight's film with its outstanding pictures of African wildlife serves as a fitting and moving memorial to an ardent naturalist and promising young film director.

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.
