A WAY in the virgin jungle of Malaya lives an animal—the Seladang—that is asserted by , those who have hunted him to be the most dangerous quarry in the world. It is not merely that he stands six feet high and has horns six feet or more in length; what makes him so particularly formidable is the fact that, unlike most big game, he is apt to attack unprovoked, and, when attacked himself, he fights his hunter to the death. ' Either you get him or he gets you.' Major Noyes will describe some thrilling incidents in which hunters have either got, or been got by, Seladang.
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
