The late Dian Fossey shared her life with the mountain gorillas of central Africa for more than a decade. These animals may be up to 6ft tall, weigh 4001bs or more and have an arm span of 8ft; but, despite their bulk, Fossey found them to be shy and unassuming creatures. Her life's work was later the subject of the feature film Gorillas in the Mist, starring
Sigourney Weaver. This documentary tells the story of Dian Fossey 's remarkable dedication and the results of her research into the gorillas of Rwanda, Africa.

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.
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.
