Waders in Winter
At high tide this little bay on the south coast is lashed by cold grey waves. But it has another mood.
As the waters recede a whole new world of plants and animals is revealed - brent geese which have flown hundreds of miles to winter in the bay, little sanderlings which run like clockwork toys along the water's edge, cord-grass which didn't even exist 100 years ago and now covers acres of mudflats, slipper limpets which change sex as they grow older, and clumps of gorse on the shore line, golden with blossom even in the short days of winter.
Today, naturalists Chris Mead and David Streeter look at the bay in both its moods.

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.
