: Boswall's Wildlife Safari to Thailand

The last of a six-part series of Night Birds of Bangkok
Introduced by Jeffery Boswall
The stars of this film are the quarter-of-a-million swallows that roost under the bright lights of downtown Bangkok. By following the swallows out on their daily feeding forays to the paddy fields the expedition discovers a surprising variety of animals.
The swallows pass the Saturday market where wild birds are sold, where cockerels and fighting fish are matched in friendly wagers. Then they fly along the klongs (or canals) where wild fighting fish live, over the estuary where waders and gulls congregate and to the paddy fields where egrets and herons feed. Finally, as bats throng out to hunt over the suburbs, the swallows return to central Bangkok - their massive display flights and community singing being one of the great wildlife spectacles in south-east Asia.

starring
LEO: 'The actual facts are so simple. I love you. You love me. You love Otto. I love Otto. Otto loves you. Otto loves me.'
Coward's play about Gilda's calamitous attempts to share her love with two men while marrying a third, met a shocked reaction when first produced in 1933. It remains his most advanced and also his most intimately revealing play.

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.
