A new film series by Heinz SIELMANN Commentary by Peter Scott
Five programmes about the wildlife of the New World, ranging from the snow and ice of the Canadian Arctic and Alaska to the tropical luxuriance of the Florida Everglades.
For the last film in his series Heinz Sielmann is in Florida. The location is the Everglades-a vast sprawling swampland inhabited by primeval reptiles and graceful exotic birds. Here Sielmann is especially fascinated by the alligators fighting, mating, and stalking their prey. He is intrigued too by the marshland birds, many of which use extraordinary fishing and feeding techniques. Sielmann gives science a film record of their remarkable behaviour.
Filmed and directed by HEINZ SIELMANN
Produced by BBC-tv in association with Norddeutscher Rundfunk
Presented by Nicholas Crocker from the South and West

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.
