Another series of the nature programme that monitors the latest news and information of our wild-life. Introduced by Tony Soper with Su Ingle
Britain has 14 species of reptiles and amphibians, 100 species of mammals, 200 breeding birds, 2,000 flowering plants and 20,000 insects. What's being done to protect the rare ones? What's the best way of seeing the commoner ones? In today's programme: TONY has the exclusive story of how a herd of red deer was transported by helicopter to an island off the coast of Wales. It's one of the most important reintroductions recently undertaken, but will the animals stay there? Deer are known to be strong swimmers !
And su INGLE goes rock climbing in the Avon Gorge to see how some of Britain's rarest plants are being saved, before blasting operations destroy them.

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.
