The World About Us

Synopsis

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.
Stella and the Apes of Mount Asserick
Stella Brewer grew up amongst the animals of the Abuko game reserve in West Africa. She could not bear to see young chimpanzees - orphaned by poachers - condemned to a life behind bars. But young chimpanzees depend on their mothers for safety and emotional support for as long as eight years.
This is the extraordinary story of how Stella decided to become foster mother to four young chimps and went off to the forest to teach them the ways of the wild - a story of her courage, the affections and jealousies of her all-too-human chimps and the adventures both comic and tragic that befell 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.
