Life on Earth

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.
A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
11: The Hunters and Hunted
Succulent leaves, shoots and roots are an abundant form of food and all over the world many mammals have adopted a life of browsing, grazing and gnawing. While these vegetarians grow fat on plant food, they in turn are hunted by a variety of meat eaters.
This eternal duel between the hunters and the hunted is one of the driving forces of evolution, and nowhere is it seen better than on the plains of East Africa.

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.
