: The Lives of Animals

Based on the writings of Booker Prize winner JM Coetzee, this powerful dramatisation is directed by Alexander Harvey. It follows Elizabeth Costello, to whom the idea of human cruelty to animals is so abhorrent that she can no longer look another person in the eye. Her compassion leads her to believe that humans - and especially meat-eaters - are conspiring in a crime on an appalling scale. Starring Eileen Atkins, Paul Rhys and Lia Williams.

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.
