: Wildlife on One

Invasion of the Killer Mink
"Shoot them all ... blood-thirsty killers ... they kill other animals for the fun of it." This is often the countrymen's reaction to the subject of mink. There can hardly be a creature in Britain that is more hated.
During the making of the programme producer
Mark Jacobs had a hot line for people to ring in with reported mink attacks - he had 150 calls. An estimated 200,000 can now be found living in our countryside. All of them are descended from escapees of British fur farms. But is the reputation of this small weasel-like creature justified? Can we learn to live with the mink? Narrated by David Attenborough. Series producer Mike Beynon ●STEREO

Risky Business
King's Cross, Zeebrugge, Piper Alpha ... more than a thousand people died in the big disasters of the late 80s. Each year more than 600 die in everyday workplace accidents. Yet after most disasters and deaths at work, company managements escape unpunished. Only one director has ever been convicted of manslaughter for a workplace death, while the average fine for safety offences is little more than £800.
Michael Crick asks whether the law on safety is too lenient. Producer Dai Richards

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.
