Mr.' NEVILLE SHARP:' Gorillas '


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.
OF all the wild animals that enchanted our youthful 'imagination, the gorilla is the most impressive ; and rightly so, for he is both monstrous and mysterious. His ferocity and his elusiveness make him harder to study than almost any other beast. During the past eighteen months Mr. Neville Sharp found himself, as an official of the Government of Nigeria, posted'to a portion of the mandated territory of the Cameroons, where he was frequently without a white man to talk to for weeks at a time. Happily, he found a hobby ready to hand in the gorilla, of whose habits he made a detailed and adventurous study, one by-product of which is a collection of skulls which is perhaps unique in Europe.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
