The population of the mountain gorilla, the gentle giant of the rainforests that straddle the borders of Rwanda, Zaire and Uganda, Is fewer than 400. This film follows the work of the biologists, conservationists and antl-poaching officers who have carried on the pioneering work of George Schaller and Dian Fossey In protecting the animal closest to man.
It Is a story full of humour and sadness. There are shots of a newly born Infant and the devouring of an ant's nest. But there is also the death of an another baby and the demise of Peanuts, the first gorilla to have physical contact with a human being, who died of old age during fllmlngof the programme.
And there are the concerns for the future, of Inter-breedlng, the hazards of disease and the risk of gorillas being caught In snares set for antelope.

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.
