Wildlife on One


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.
Whistling Hunters Narrated by David Attenborough
The scene is a dense forest in Southern India. A family of wild boar are grazing quietly by the river bank. Suddenly a pair of fox-like ears pops up from the grass: a pack of dholes - Indian wild dogs - are closing in for the kill.
The Indian dog is so rarely seen that early authors thought it might be a mythical animal. This film demonstrates for the first time that dholes are definitely fact, not fiction - expert trackers and hunters in pursuit of prey, gentle and affectionate when guarding and playing with the pups. Above all, they are pack animals and, as they move through the forest, they keep in touch with each other with a strange high-pitched call. Photographed and directed by NARESH BEDI

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.
