Tomorrow's World


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.
Tonight, a special edition from Kenya. Elephants pose a huge problem for
Kenyan farmers: they feast on fields of maize and have worked out howto get round electric fences.
Shahnaz Pakravan and Craig Doyle meet the inventor of a fence that can outwitthe cleverest elephant. Also, the woman who saved the country's banana industry, and a new contraceptive vaccine for baboons that could eventually work for humans, perhaps replacing the pill. Presented by Howard Stableford and Vivienne Parry.
Producer Jonathan Renouf ; Editor Edward Briffa

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.
