Animal Olympians

Synopsis

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.
Narrated by JEFFERY BOSWALL
Who are the wildlife winners- the fastest sprinters, the speediest swimmers, the highest jumpers, the best boxers, the finest gymnasts? This programme presents the superlative physical feats of the animal world, and reveals the ' how ' and the ' why ' of their extraordinary prowess. In the human games the fastest and the strongest sportspeople in the world challenge the barriers of physical skill. But even the record breakers among them produce puny performances beside the champions of the animal kingdom.

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.
