The World About Us


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.
The Predators
Narrated by David Attenborough
To the early American pioneers, the larger predatory animals - cougar, wolf and bear-were part of the threatening face of the wilderness which surrounded them.
Shot and harassed wherever they were encountered, their numbers dwindled as the wild was opened up for settlement.
This spectacular film explores the relationship of predators and their prey, showing how both benefit from the struggle for survival.
Outstanding footage shot in 25 states follows the trail of hunters and prey, from the grizzlies and bald eagles of Alaska, where spawning salmon provide a bumper food harvest, to the southern marshes of Texas and Louisiana where red wolves and white-tailed deer seek sanctuary in an environment into which man has not yet intruded.

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.
