: Ice Fox

In the Arctic winter, which is most of the time, the temperature plummets to 70 below freezing - or worse - and a gale-force wind piles ice-hard snow into impenetrable drifts. In this environment the ice fox, the size of a domestic cat, manages to thrive.
Tonight's repeated Natural
World film follows the contrasting fortunes of two pairs of the foxes, one on the coast of Spitzbergen, the other deep in the Siberian tundra.
The brief summer brings in migrant bird life and temporary relief, as food is a little more easily available, but even in June the climate can change in moments and prey disappear.
"With the air so cold that your beard freezes to the camera," says producer Owen Newman , "you really appreciate how superbly adapted these little animals are. And they don'tjust have to fight the cold and the wind, they have to find food in a vast and empty land locked in snow and ice."

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.

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