: Wildlife on One

Under the Weather Narrated by David Attenborough
We discuss it, complain about it, try to forecast it, but at least we can shelter from its worst excesses. For wildlife, there's little escape from the weather. Can animals predict it? The Victorian Dr Merryweather thought so; his 'Tempest Prognosticator' relied on the prophetic powers of medicinal leeches. Even today, some people foretell the weather by watching rooks, cows, or spiders.
How does a change in the weather affect wildlife? From the Caribbean to Connemara, from Cornwall to Caithness, here is an animal outlook on our capricious climate. Film editor CHRIS ORRELL Written and produced by PELHAM ALDRICH BLAKE

In the aftermath of elections in the Soviet Union, the whole of the Soviet Eastern European Empire is in increasing ferment.

Soviet tanks crushed the experiment of 'Communism with a human face' in 1968. Today the Government in Prague, paralysed by the fear of change, has embarked on a new repression. But even here, the basic beliefs of 40 years of Communism are under challenge.

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.
