: Wildlife on One

A new series of animal films
Introduced by David Attenborough
Behind the Jaws
... lies an array of glittering plastic teeth. Although the model used for the movie gave an impression of size and ferocity, not all sharks are killers. RON and VALERIE TAYLOR , diving deep into waters where there are more deaths from shark attack than in any other part of the world, show that our picture of this fish is misleading and varied.
Large and white, or subtly frilly and camouflaged? Ferocious killers or timid hunted ' nurse' sharks, fleeing in terror from the underwater photographer? Sluggish cave dwellers or lithe tiger denizens flitting with abandon through the tropical seas? This film brings you the answers.
Produced and photographed by RON and VALERIE TAYLOR

Introduced by Humphrey Burton A White Wall in Alentejo
' Art is a culture at the service of the people's struggle.'
(Portuguese wall poster)
A revolution happens and a regime is overthrown.
What happens to the arts during. such an upheaval? Do they have an effect on the course of events? Are they transformed by the political changes?
This film was shot in Portugal last May, and looks at the situation of the arts in a changing society. It ranges from the international cultural scene of the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon to the political murals on the white walls of Alentejo in the south.

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.
