: Wildlife on One

Alligator Hole. In the Florida Everglades alligators preside over pools teeming with wildlife, and as the summer drought takes hold, the pools become ever more important. "Turtles, snakes and other alligators will travel miles to find an alligator hole," says producer Bernard Walton. "As the hole fills with animals, a feeding frenzy starts. Anything that moves, from tiny crickets to large fish, can be snapped up by the alligator. And with more alligators crowding together fights break out, occasionally leading to death."
David Attenborough explores the world of these living dinosaurs.

: States of Terror

In the final investigation of the series about state responses to terrorism, Peter Taylor uncovers the story of how Army
Intelligence and M15 recruit and deploy agents within Northern Ireland's paramilitary groups.
The report focuses on two agents. One was for many years one of MI5's top operators in the province, feeding information to the security services that succeeded in saving lives.
In a first interview with an M15 agent, the film reveals the process of his recruitment and how he operated. He claims to have taken on the work not for money but for moral reasons, to help prevent terrorist killings.
He is still alive, whereas IRA man Gregory Burns is dead. His naked and hooded body, along with those of two other alleged British agents, was found last year dumped in South Armagh.
All three had been "executed" by the IRA. The programme has gained unique access to the records of their final "confessions" in a film that defines the secret battleground between the British state and terrorists, Loyalist and Republican, in Northern Ireland. ProducerStephen Walker
Executive producer Steve Hewlett


Unknown: Peter Taylor
Unknown: Gregory Burns

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
