Gremlins of the Night
With big, appealing eyes and huge ears - they could be role models for those "gremlins" of the Hollywood movies - the forest-dwelling prosimian family, which include bushbabies, tarsiers, pottos and lorises, are among nature's most endearing characters.
This programme goes in search of these little-known creatures of the night, who can be identified by their distinctive calls and voices, and finds a new species of bushbaby in East
Africa. In Sulawesi, Indonesia, another new species of tarsier has been detected by a song never before heard. Members of the family have eyes that are bigger than their brains, butin their night time search for food both smell and hearing also play their part.
"The tropical forest at night is still one of the great undiscovered natural wonders," says producer Bernard Walton. "We are only beginning to shine a tiny light on this secret world. Narrated by David Attenborough.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
