The Natural World: Land of the Tiger


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.
Of all the creatures that stalk India's jungles, none evoke such awe as the tiger.
Elusive, mysterious and seldom seen, this great cat has defeated every effort to record more than a glimpse of its life, until now - though even this dramatic portrait of the tiger's world took two-and-a-half years to film.

Tigers stalk and kill their prey, mate and rear their young in a wild India, the land of Kipling's Jungle Books. They share it with deer and peacock, monkey, snake and crocodile. It is a land of breathtaking beauty that, except in a few beleaguered strongholds, vanished long ago.

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.
