World About Us Special


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.
SIMON TREVOR 'S Bloody Ivory
This is the astounding true story, filmed over five years, of a single game warden's attempt to combat elephant poachers in Tsavo National Park, Kenya.
While David Sheldrick, with spotter-plane and armed rangers tries to outwit the master elephant-hunter Galo Galo , his wife Daphne must care for the baby animals orphaned by the poachers; like Push-me the rhino, and Aisha the tiny elephant, who arrives only a few days old.
Savage, poignant, comic and tragic by turns, this is.one of the finest documentaries ever to be made about man and big game. It is also a cry from the heart of Africa to save the elephant.

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.
