: The Curious Cat

Narrated by Eleanor Bron
Most people have strong feelings about cats; you either like them or dislike them. But few of us have ever glimpsed the private undomesticated cat-the cat that lives on its own, away from human companions. In the heart of the Devon countryside, on open farm-land, four cats - a mature tom and three females-were studied and filmed for a year. Their story gives a picture of the cat in the wild which will make us all-whether cat lovers or not-think quite differently about an animal which, for centuries, we have taken for granted.

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.
