: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 2:The Frozen World
Polar bears and penguins; snow leopards and fur seals -all face a common enemy - extreme cold.
From the mountains of Africa and the Americas to the glaciers of Antarctica and the Arctic, David Attenborough explores the ways animals and plants survive in the realms of snow and ice. In Antarctica, he lands among huge colonies of elephant seals; follows the extraordinary breeding cycle of the emperor penguin through the harsh darkness of the Antarctic winter: and in one of the coldest, driest valleys on earth, discovers the bodies of mummified seals miles from the sea. The polar bear, that great white hunter of the Canadian Arctic, is followed as it stalks its prey across the ice, and underwater. Summer comes briefly to those frozen northern lands. With it come hunting snowy owls, flocks of snow geese and great migrating herds of caribou.

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.
