: The Human Animal

The human animal has gone from mud hut to skyscraper in the mere twinkling of an evolutionary eye to make us the most overcrowded species in the world. In this documentary,
Desmond Morris continues his personal view of the human species by examining how and why we cope with living inside what he calls The Human Zoo.
He shows that we deal with the stranger-filled urban environment by formingour own small personal "tribes" of friends, each with a territory and social hierarchy of its own.
Everyone else is a non-person to be blanked out. However, although this is a successful recipe for peaceful living, sometimes violence and mayhem does break out - usually between tribes but even within a tribe. If we are to survive, Morris believes we need to adapt the city to the basic nature of the human animal ratherthan forcing the human animal to adapt to the city. Producer John Macmsh

: BBC Proms

The BBC Philharmonic come to the Proms in - their 60th anniversary year. Under their principal conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier and as part of the celebration of the Proms' first hundred years, they perform two of the many works which received their
British premiere at these concerts. The first is Ravel's s
Piano Concerto for the Left Hand
(originally written for a pianist who lost his right arm in the First
World War - tonight's soloist is Jean-Yves Thibaudet ) followed by Sibelius's powerful First Symphony.
"I made my debut at the Proms in 1962 when I was 15, playing the violin in the Brahms Double Concerto with my late father, Paul," says Tortelier. "It was my first contact with a London audience and they gave me an unforgettable welcome.
"Since 1988 I've appeared at the Proms every year as a conductor, and to me it is the greatest musical event in the world. Tonight we combine
French music with Sibelius, not an obvious coupling but one I find extraordinarily appealing. There is great poetry in Sibelius and he can be extremely impressionistic, too."
The programme is introduced by Richard Baker. Director Mike Newman
Executive producer Jonathan Fulford


Conductor: Yan Pascal Tortelier
Unknown: Jean-Yves Thibaudet

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.
