When this Wildlife on One film was first shown in 1981,itit destroyed many of the myths about urban foxes. They turned out not to be the dirty, mangy vicious animals that most people believe: they don't feed exclusively from dustbins, and they don't kill cats.
But it also showed that there are indeed a lot of foxes in some of our cities - living on waste ground, under back garden sheds or in cellars, even dozing in the sun on your roof. Their activities filmed both by day and night, urban foxes are shown in a completely new light. Presented by David Attenborough. Producer Mike Beynon

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.
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.
