: Wild West

The third and final film
I in this series that has penetrated the unspoilt natural habitats of North
America is subitled The Bandit and the Builder. The narrator is
Bob Peck.
The bandit is the resourceful racoon, a looter and a loner with a facial stripe like a robber's mask. The builder is the beaver, an industrious animal that is constantly busy constructing dams and caringfor the family. It has a positive effect on the habitat, since its eleborate dams cause silting which in turn creates fertile meadows.
These two contrasting mammals usually manage to live separate lives, but their paths cross in the broad-leaved woodlands of southern Canada.
They live in peaceful harmony until a dispute over ownership bring the bandit and the builder into confrontation.

Shirley was on her way home after visiting her daughter in hospital when she was attacked. She'd caught the bus to Bury Interchange and was waiting for her connection at about 9.20pm when she visited the ladies toilet. Her body was found a few hours later. A man wearing a flat cap, around 40-50 years old was seen near the toilets several times that evening.

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.
