: Animal Magic

A weekly series.
Introduced by Johnny Morris with Keith Shackleton.
The World of Animals
In the wild, in the zoo, at home: a magazine of stories about animals constantly illustrating their own kind of magic.

Ever since the day two of them escorted him from Bristol Zoo to Broadcasting House in Bristol, Johnny Morris has been fond of elephants.
There are times, though, when even these friendly creatures can be grumpy, and in Animal Magic this week Keeper Morris has a little trouble with a baby elephant at Whipsnade.

There's an item from Keith Shackleton about the surprisingly varied work of a town vet; and another chance to see a film that has been requested more continuously than any other seen on Animal Magic - 'The Gooney Bird', about that extraordinary Midway Island Albatross.

: Playbill: Kittens are Brave

by Giles Cooper.
With George Murcell, Diana Fairfax, Geoffrey Bayldon
(First shown on BBC-2)

Wensley Grafton is a former barrister who has found fame and wealth as a stimulating and provocative TV philosopher.
In one of his programmes he makes an unfavourable remark about dogs - and the response is enormous.
One letter is particularly horrible, making obscene references not only to Grafton but also to his wife Carol.
The signature at the bottom has been ineffectually scratched out - and Grafton is eventually able to identify it as that of The Reverend Gordon Shiplake...

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
