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.

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.
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.
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.
