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.
Geese Are Only Human with Konrad Lorenz
A film about an extraordinary man and the geese that thought he was one of them
Narrated by David Attenborough For 50 years Lorenz has been demonstrating amazing parallels between the behaviour of geese and men. His ideas have inspired many biologists, caused others to regard him as a heretic, and, through such books as King Solomon's Ring, set up such a wave of public interest in animal behaviour that ' ethology' has become a smart word to use.

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.
