: Living Dangerously

Prince SadruddinAga Khan heads the - conservation group Alp
Action. He must balance the interests of threatened species like the bearded vulture - brought close to extinction in the mistaken belief that it killed lambs - and the alpine chough with those of the ski-ing industry, and this balance Is essential in securing the future of the Alps themselves.
The vulture is subject of an ambitious breedingprogramme designed to reintroduce a healthy population to the upper mountain slopes, involving co-operation between Austria, Switzerland, Italy and France. Tonight's film follows the fortunes of a particular vulture chick, and remote-control helicopters and microlight aircraft are used to film the spectacular terrain of the roof of Europe.
Series producer
Richard Brock sums up the need to look after both the wildlife and the livelihoods of those living in the Alps. "The Alps must be saved not only for vultures and choughs, but for the millions of people and millions of pounds in the business of tourism."

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.
