Trivial Pursuit? - The
Natural Mystery of Play Narrated by David Attenborough
A kitten with a ball of wool, young squirrels chasing each other in the trees, lion cubs stalking their mother's tail - it's easy enough to see when animals are playing. But why do they do it?
In search of the answer, this programme looks at some of the champion 'players' of the animal world, otters and cheetahs, squirrels and rhesus monkeys, but above all, kittens, whose playful antics are the guide to the behaviour of many animals in the wild. Film editors

: Film 88 Special

Sir David Lean
Sir David Lean was 80 this week. He's one of Britain's most distinguished film directors. His credits include Brief Encounter, Great
Expectations, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Lawrence of Arabia, Dr Zhivago, Ryan's
Daughter and, most recently, A Passage to India. His films have accumulated countless awards and nominations.
'I like telling stories: it may be out of fashion at the moment in some circles, but it has been with us since we lived in caves.' Indeed David Puttnam called him 'the greatest storyteller on film'. Lean is renowned both for his attention to detail and the epic scale of his films. 'I like working for big screen and big cinemas, not tiny art houses.'
Barry Norman interviews
Sir David Lean about a life of film-making. It includes extracts from his films, and archive footage of him at work.
('A Passage to India' will be shown next Sunday on BBC1)

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.
