: The Human Animal

"People may appear different to each other," says
Desmond Morris , "but every human being alive today shares an almost identical, genetic inheritance. Our instincts and behaviour are still rooted in our animal past."
Morris has worked on human and animal behaviour programmes for more than 30 years - from Zoo Time to The Animals Roadshow - and has written several bestsellers including The Naked Ape and Manwatching. This week, Radio Times presents the first of three exclusive extracts from his latestwork, The Human Animal, on page 32. For this six-part TV series he focuses on the behaviour of homo sapiens, examining areas such as love and sex, baby rearing, the importance of urban habitat and the roots of our creativity.
He starts with The Language of the Body, revealing that we have a repertoire of 3,000 gestures, some of which are so powerful and old that they are beyond our control. We may lie with words but our expression can give us away. ProducerCliveBromhall

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.
