Nature Detectives


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.
When infra-red cameras were set up in a nest of long-eared owls so that an amateur sound recordist could hear the calls between parents, they revealed behaviour that had never been filmed before. Ornithologist
Bryan Little was amazed by the pictures he saw. "They're magic," he said.
Also included in this, the last programme of the wildlife series, is a report on a hornet rescue service, which includes some stunning close-up shots of the fearsome insects, and film of some very special squirrels in Letchworth. Isolated from the more common grey variety, a colony of black squirrels has developed in the grounds of the hospital.
And finally there are clips from the best films sent in by viewers to the Nature
Detectives/Radio Times competition including footage of the secretive roe deer and foxes hunting in the Scottish highlands, and, of course the winning tape itself. Series producer Paul Appleby

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.
