: Wildlife on One

Enter the Dragons. Did dragons ever really exist? Wildlife on One goes on the trail of possible prototypes for this symbol of a primeval ferocity. Perhaps the dragon legends common to many different cultures derive from the various types of monitor lizard. The Komodo
Dragon, which lives on the Sunda islands of Indonesia, is the largest and most ferocious of the monitors. Watching a group of these huge carnivores frenziedly ripping apart a deer carcass can make the dragon myths seem only too plausible. Narrated by David Attenborough. ProducerNigel Marven

: Crimewatch File

Another chance to see a programme in the series which, with special access to police files, reconstructs a major crime investigation.
The Railway Murders. Between December 1985 and May three young women - Alison Day , Maartje Tamboezer and Anne Lock - were raped and murdered. At first the cases seemed quite separate, but definite links soon emerged.
Then police discovered another connection - to 27 rapes in north London. The investigation involved four police forces and a million hours of enquiries. It was the first time in this country that police used offender profiling to help catch a serial killer.
Presented by Nick Ross. Producer Martin O'Collins

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.
