: Newsround Extra: Rescue at Sea

A boat in distress, a child cut off by the tide - a call to the coastguard and the nearest rescue helicopter can be scrambled within seconds. And within just a few minutes the lifeboat can also be on its way. Britain's Air-Sea Rescue services are the envy of many countries, but could they be even better?

: Private Lives Narrated by Jeffery Boswall

The Private Life of the Rhesus Macaque
Since 1938 a group of Indian rhesus macaques have been living free on a tropical island in the Caribbean. Into this idyllic situation came scientists who wanted to find out how the monkeys live together and how their numbers are controlled. This intimate film shows what has been discovered about their social life - the serious side, and the fun and games.
Each monkey must know ' who's who' in its band, particularly those males which are dominant. 'Male number one,' the highest ranking member of the hierarchy, must be watched by all. But there is time to relax and the immatures have fun as they play games. They climb the high shrubs to jump nearly 30 feet into small forest pools - a game they evidently enjoy.
Produced and filmed by CHARLES W. SCHWARTZ and ELIZABETH R. SCHWARTZ
A United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare film
Presented by JEFFERY BOSWALL (Bristol) Private Lives, based on previous programmes in the series, £1.75. from bookshops

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.
