: The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau

Hippo!
How do you persuade an irate hippo to pose for your underwater cameras? On an expedition to study the wildlife of Africa's inland shorelines, Cousteau tries several methods.
A plastic life-sized hippo called ' Lolita,' concealing two divers, proves hilarious but unsuccessful; so Cousteau moves to another lake only to find that it's the mating season for hippos and the massive animals are aggressive and unpredictable.
Two remote-controlled cameras have to be used but are soon smashed by a charging hippo. So there's nothing left but to risk going into the pool with the restive hippos ...
Narrated by JACQUES COUSTEAU and HUGH FALKUS
A production of LES REQUINS associes and METROMEDIA PRODUCERS CORPORATION

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.
