Encounters with Animals


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 last of three films showing man's varied involvement with wild animals on land and in the sea. Giants of the Vermilion Sea Narrator Hugh Falkus
Would you swim with a 30 ton whale shark, 50 feet long and with a mouth five-feet wide - the largest fish in the world?
Krov and Ann Menuhin - husband and wife film partners in underwater adventure - did just that, and more. In the Gulf of California they cruise and dive in one of the richest but least-known seas of the world. They meet huge grey whales, basking sharks, dive-bombing pelicans and the rare blue whale. They join the sea-lions' graceful ballet - and then encounter the gigantic whale shark.

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.
