: Wildlife on One

Orang Utans ...out on a Limb
Since orangutans live in the highest branches of trees in the tropical rainforest, this is understandably the very first time that a film of their private life has been made. The location is a remote region of northern Sumatra, and the film follows the first year of life of a baby orang utan nicknamed Yossa. Yossa's parents are the dominant members of their species in the area, but producer Susan Western still says:
"Yossa's path to the top will be a precarious one. Notjust because of the personal challenges to survival, but also because his home is in one of the most threatened environments in the world, lowland tropical rainforest."
David Attenborough is the narrator.

: JFK Reckless Youth

A two-part drama tracing the youthful escapades of the member of an American dynasty who became 36th President of the United States.
"It's us against the world," was the motto of the head of the Irish-Catholic family and business empire, Joe Kennedy Sr. In his son Jack the fighting spirit was reflected in a determination to live life to the full, especially as far as women were concerned.
In 1937 Joe Sr was appointed US ambassador to Great Britain, and Jack came to learn the nature of Nazi tyranny. This led him to support America's entry into the war, but Joe Sr remained an isolationist, bringing the two into conflict. The conflict increased when Jack planned to marry Danish journalist Inga Arvad, and Joe Sr informed him she was a German spy.
The concluding part is tomorrow at 9.30pm.

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.
