Desmond in the chimpanzee house to find out.
From the biggest dog show in the world - run by women - Sarah reports on the dogs of legend. They include the mastiffs who confronted
Julius Caesar , the superdogs 'created' by man, and the St Bernards who conquered the Alps. Desmond joins a six-legged drugs patrol and visits the hospital where cats, goats and donkeys are allowed to walk in, bringing new hope to the patients. Researchers

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.
