British Isles: a Natural History


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.
3/8. Ice Age. Polar bears in Scotland, hippos, lions and hyenas in London's Trafalgar Square and a mile-thick
- sheet of ice over Birmingham - Alan Titchmarsh travels back two million years to a time where winters lasting thousands of years alternated with unusually warm periods. He also gets under the skin of Neanderthal Man - literally, with the aid of make-up and prosthetics - and goes fishing in the North Sea for mammoth tusks.
At 9.50, local "landscape detectives" investigate how the Ice Age shaped their surroundings. Highlights of these regional snapshots are featured in British Isles: A User's Guide to Natural History at 10.50pm on BBC4.

British Isles: a Natural History

BBC One London, 13 October 2004 21.00

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.
