with the latest news and information on our wildlife. with Su Ingle and Michael Jordan
Everyone knows the difference between a mouse and a vole. Or do they? What about the difference between a vole and a shrew? Isn't the water rat a vole and not a rat at all? The dormouse - isn't that more closely related to a rat than a mouse? And didn't someone say that there's no such thing as a field mouse?
Mike and Su sort out all the confusion today and give you a sure-fire method for telling all these little animals apart.

David Attenborough Gerald Durrell Sir Peter Scott
Armand and Michaela Denis Hans and Lotte Hass Johnny Morris Tony Soper
It started in those romantic days when Hans and Lotte were Diving to Adventure, when viewers could join Armand and Michaela On Safari, and Peter Scott 's Look was establishing itself as Britain's first regular wildlife television series. Through a quarter-century of nature filming, from the black-and-white age of the gifted amateur to the advanced techniques used for Life on Earth, Wildlife on One and The World About Us, we recapture some of the memorable moments and-with critical affection - the excitement of discovery that's so much a part of these much acclaimed productions.

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.
