: Boswall's Wildlife Safari to Thailand

The first of a new six-part series of zoological exploration. Neither Land nor Sea
Introduced by Jeffery Boswall
The twice-daily surge of the tide across the open mudflats and through the hot, humid mangroves offers a challenging world for the animals and plants that live there. At high tide it's a haven for otters and kingfishers seeking out their food, and when the mud is exposed it's the turn of colourful fiddler crabs jostling between their burrows; mudskippers - fish that live out of water to sift the sediments, and long-tailed macaques which prize barnacles from the exposed mangrove roots.

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.
