: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 9:The Margins of the Land
Our coasts are a battleground. On exposed shores the sea is on the attack; in sheltered estuaries the land is advancing. Living between the tides demands special talents.
David Attenborough wades through the sticky mud in an English estuary in search of the creatures that live there, and the birds that feed on them. Life is more abundant in the mangrove forests of the tropics, including fish that hunt out of water, and the world's largest reptile.
But it is the rocky wave-battered coast of North America that is unsurpassed for variety of intertidal life. Sandy shores harbour specialised animals including a snail that surfs up and down the beach.
In Costa Rica turtles come ashore in their thousands to breed, and on the Malaysian coast DAVID ATTENBOROUGH encounters the mysterious seven-foot-long leatherback turtle.

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.
