: Wildlife Safari to Ethiopia

Introduced by Jeffery Boswall 5: The Tablelands Ethiopia is the roof of Africa: most of the country is a volcanic plateau over a mile and a half high. Addis Ababa at 8,500 feet has been called Eucalyptopolis - having been forested with gum trees from Australia. If the eucalyptus tree is the floral symbol of Ethiopia then the lion is its animal symbol.
The expedition explores one of the most beautiful subterranean watercourses in the world. The Cave of Sof Omar houses a million bats, and at the entrance mosque monkeys are fed by Moslem pilgrims.
In Harar town a man feeds wild hyenas that come out of the night to take bones from his hands. On the floor of the Great Rift Valley lies Lake Abiata - home to the Great White Pelican and an unrivalled variety of waterbirds, including the Black Heron whose fishing technique has to be seen to be believed.

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.
