: Wildlife

David Attenborough 's 12 favourite Wildlife on One programmes, which he has chosen from more than editions shown over the past 16years of the series.
Meerkats United. One of the best-loved Wildlife on One programmes, the film in which the now-famous meerkats popped up their heads was shown for the first time in 1987. Meerkats are not, in fact, related to cats but are mongooses, and for the best part of a year, cameraman
Richard Goss followed a family of them in their hostile Kalahari desert home. He was there when the team hunted, when babies were born, and as they grew up. He also discovered that the secret of the gang's survival seemed to lie in their teamwork. His extraordinary and delightful footage shows them as they help each other to protect the youngsters, share their foods and take on all adversaries - from snakes, scorpions and jackals to their greatest threat, another team of meerkats. Narrated by David Attenborough. Producer Marion Zunz

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
