: The Making of Supersense

Introduced by Gavin Campbell Periscopes, probe lenses, thermal image cameras and model aircraft are just a few of the devices used to unravel the mysteries of the animal world. This programme takes a glimpse behind the scenes of the series Supersense, and reveals the most advanced techniques used in the field of wildlife film-making. It features some of the more bizarre ways of using the camera in less orthodox ways - like paragliding with a flying duck or using a child's toy to carry a camera into a pride of lions, with remarkable and amusing results.

The Killer Inside
There's growing concern that Britain's prisons are a breeding ground for AIDS.
Senior prison workers warn that smuggled drugs are widespread and many prisoners continue to share syringes and needles. Other prisoners admit to working as prostitutes while inside, often in order to obtain drugs. Robin Denselow reports from Edinburgh, London and Stafford on the extent of drug abuse and high-risk sexual activity in Britain's prisons, and the controversy over the treatment of those known to have the AIDS virus. The
Home Office is preparing a video for prisoners, but critics urge more drastic action if prisons are not to be a bridgehead in the spread of AIDS into the heterosexual community. Producer EAMONN MATTHEWS Editor TIM GARDAM

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
