The Animals Roadshow

Synopsis

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.
with Desmond Morris and Sarah Kennedy
Which cat loves to swim? How did the tabby get its name? And which breed was Queen Victoria's favourite? Desmond finds out when he visits the oldest cat club in the world as it celebrates its 100th anniversary. On show at Olympia are well over 2,000 cats of more than 80 different breeds. Are cat and dog lovers different types of people?
Meanwhile, Sarah visits a hospital that puts the heart back into hedgehogs. As she explores the animal life of Battersea Park, she encounters ferrets, four-legged policemen, an elephant and the dog's equivalent to the Sloane
Ranger. Could it be a yappie? Research

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.
