: Wild New World: 1: Canadian Spring

A new film series by Heinz Sielmann
Commentary by Peter Scott

Five programmes about the wildlife of the New World, ranging from the snow and ice of the Canadian Arctic and Alaska to the tropical luxuriance of the Florida Everglades.

As spring breaks the icy grip of the Arctic winter, the wildlife of the region revives. Wild geese and duck are migrating to their breeding grounds; other birds are involved in elaborate courtship displays; the wolves are already rearing their cubs; antelope and bison roam the plains and herds of wild caribou move northwards in search of fresh pasture.

: White Africa

A documentary by Hugh Burnett.

What is the truth about South Africa?
Earlier this year BBC-1 transmitted this remarkable and much-acclaimed film which looked at South Africa solely through the eyes of white people in the Republic. Most of them see the black man as under-developed and alien to their culture, flatly rejecting the idea of integration and seeking instead the best way to live apart.
Hugh Burnett has since returned to South Africa to make a second film, The Heart of Apartheid, looking at South Africa through the eyes of its non-white peoples, the majority of the population. These two films are now being presented as a pair: White Africa tonight, and The Heart of Apartheid next Tuesday at 9.5 p.m. Together they make an important contribution in this World Human Rights Year to the never-ending debate about the rights of man.

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.
