David Attenborough 's 12 favourite Wildlife on One programmes, which he has chosen from more than editions shown over the past 16 years of the series.
The Bat that Cracked the Frog Code. In the jungles of Panama, croaking frogs are in great danger from an airborne predator that has evolved sensory abilities to rival the creations of science-fiction writers. A fringe-lipped bat called the Trachops is equipped with an array of echolocation and decoding devices as elaborate as a spy plane. It locks onto the frog calls so that it can track them down wherever they hide. Using high-speed photography, this 1982 film reveals the bats' incredible accuracy at identifying and catching its prey. Narrated by David Attenborough. Producer Keenan Smart

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.
