: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
The last of 12 programmes New Worlds
For 10,000 years we have been changing the face of the earth, and the animals and plants that live upon it. When the early farmers reached England 6,000 years ago, they cleared the forests for their farms. Since then most of the British countryside and much of its wildlife has been changed. Most of our food is also our creation. The Philippine rice terraces and North American wheatlands show how far we are transforming the land to produce enough food for our ever-growing population.
David Attenborough looks at the damage we are causing far away from our centres of population - to the oceans, the atmosphere, and the tropical rain forests. And he suggests what should be done if we care enough about the future of our living planet.

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.
