: The Living Isles: 1: After the Ice

A ten-part natural history of Britain and Ireland
Presented by Julian Pettifer
Ten thousand years ago the Ice Age ended in Britain. The melting glaciers revealed a bare and lifeless landscape. This story traces the epic transformation - from Ice
Age to motorway age - of the wilderness and wildlife of our islands.

The magnificent golden eagle takes us to the coldest peaks of Scotland where ice-age animals still survive. Here Arctic hares box, snow buntings raid scraps from skiers and beetles scavenge deep-frozen insects. In cold northern lakes frogs breed under the ice, goosanders dive for arctic fish, and even Loch Ness reveals an ice-age creature. All are living reminders of the first wildlife that returned to the land, after the ice.

To Seem the Stranger A portrait of Gerard Manley Hopkins
To seem the stranger lies my lot, my life
Among strangers....
England, whose honour 0 all my heart woos, wife
To my creating thought, would neither hear
Me, were I pleading, plead nor do I....
During his lifetime not six people even knew he wrote poetry, and no one thought it worth publishing. His family never accepted his conversion to Catholicism. He spent much of his adult life working as a priest in Liverpool and Dublin. He died at 45. Yet today Gerard Manley Hopkins is recognised as one of the greatest Victorian poets. He lived in isolation from the fashions and trends of his time. But his work seems wholly modern.
In this portrait John Wain , writer and former Oxford
Professor of Poetry, examines Hopkins's life and work, explains why the Victorians found it hard to listen to his voice - and why we need to. Reader PAUL WEBSTER

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.
