: Elephants: Spy in the Herd

Question: how do you film deep inside a herd of African elephants without incurring the wrath of a gang of seven-ton bulls? Answer: put a remote-controlled camera on wheels and disguise it as a pile of elephant dung.
Continuing the occasional Wildlife Specials series, this ingenious, if unorthodox, method enabled the crew to gain an intimate insight into the workings of elephant society in Kenya. The results gained from the cameras include battling bulls, a newborn being helped to its feet, and the herd plunging into mud pools. David Attenborough narrates.
Wildlife on One: Peregrine - Nature's Top Gun is Wednesday 7pm
Elevision: page 11

Wildlife: Elephants: Spy in the Herd 9.00pm BBC1
Who can resist the cuteness of a baby elephant? Not a wildlife camera crew, that's for sure. This revealing view of elephant life in Africa has enough shots of calves fooling about to satisfy the soppiest viewer. But it also has a few surprises, such as when a horny bull who's trying to get it on with a female lashes out at a calf who's distracting her.
There are lots of intimate views of elephant life here, courtesy of some cunningly disguised "dung cams". The film-makers are so excited about these devices that they spend too much time showing us the cameras instead of what they're filming, and when a curious bull gives one of the dung cams a playful kick, they can scarcely contain their excitement, even cracking some feeble football gags on the voice-over.

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.

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.
