The World About Us

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Tender Trap
An extraordinarily dramatic and much acclaimed film - about four plants! It sounds impossible but it's not, for the plants are all carnivorous.
Venus fly-traps closing on their insect prey like vegetable versions of a rat trap ...
Sundews with sticky arms baited with sugary bait enfolding their meals in octopus fashion ...
Bladderworts feeding on underwater creatures caught with a fast-triggered blunder trap ... Finally pitcher plants enticing their insect meals to the top of a slide down which they glissade into a flask of insect-rich soup .. , The purpose of all this: to allow these plants to live where other plants can't ... an evolutionary trick for survival in places where essential nitrogen compounds are hard to come by. Narrated and directed by HUGH FALKUS
Produced by OXFORD SCIENTIFIC FILMS Series editors ANTHONY ISAACS and CHRISTOPHER PARSONS (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.
