Nature Special


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.
London Zoo - an Endangered Species
Will next week's bank holiday be the last one for London Zoo?
The most famous zoo in the world is now more endangered than the rare species it houses, and is due to close at the end of September. After decades of brinkmanship, the government has refused to bail the zoo out of its latest financial crisis, and the visiting public has stopped visiting. The keepers believe the only way to get them back - and save the zoo - is to market its internationally famous conservation credentials and to highlight the valuable captive-breeding and research work it has done. In a desperate race against time, the search has begun for a survival plan.
In this special report, Nature goes behind the scenes during the most crucial period in the zoo's long history to investigate accusations of bad management and financial incompetence, and to ask whether the zoo has any future beyond the end of next month.

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.
