: Wildlife on One

I The worldwide wildlife documentary series.
Too Closefor Comfort? For the first time, the true life of chimpanzees is revealed in their forest home.
Shot over two years, this film includes remarkable photography by Michael Richard of 60 chimpanzees hunting and killing monkeys for food. It appears horrific, but a closer look reveals that the chimps hunt in a highly organised, intelligent way. Each of the large males has a specific role; some go ahead and block the monkey's escape as others drive them forward.
During the day the chimps travel at least 26 miles through the forest. "Keeping up with them was the hardest thing I've ever done," says producer Alastair Fothergill. The cameraman collapsed and had to abandon his heavy equipment and use shoulder-supported news cameras.
Besides their hunting skills, the chimps use 19 different tools - only man uses more. And theirs is also a warm, intimate society. So might they be our nearest relations? Narrated by David Attenborough. Series producer Mike Beynon ● STEREO

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.
