Animal Scene


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.
2: The Wild and the Rare
Why is it so important to conserve endangered species of wild and domestic breeds? Michael Rodd finds out as he explores the animal world around Britain. Otters are, perhaps, Philip Wayre 's favourite animals, but at Norfolk Wildlife Park he claims to have the largest specialist collection of European mammals and birds in the country - from Alpine ibex to Eagle owls - and a record of outstanding breeding successes that has never been beaten.
Joe Henson , at Cotswold Farm Park, a member of the recently formed Rare Breeds Survival Trust, is concerned with preserving historic breeds of livestock - the Soay, Jacob, and Manx Loghtan sheep; the tremendous Longhorn and tiny Dexter cattle; and pigs like the Gloucester Old Spot which used to make your bacon taste of cider.

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.
