Gorillas In the Mist


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.
First showing on network television for this film biography of naturalist Dian Fossey , featuring some remarkable wildlife footage and starring Sigoumey Weaver Bryan Brown
Full of high ideals and a passion for nature, Fossey arrives in Africa to research the rare mountain gorillas living in the Virunga mountains of south-east Congo. But, accused of spying, she is forced across the border into Rwanda where she establishes a new research centre and dedicates her life to dismantling the mass of misinformation about these creatures. Under constant threat from poachers, Fossey has to train her own army of local vigilantes and leads an increasingly solitary life. Even romance doesn't diminish her commitment to her life's work.

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.
