: THE WORLD ABOUT US

A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it
WILD JAMAICA
Narrated by Alan Gibson
The story of a group of Oxford zoologists who recently spent a working vacation filming the Caribbean wildlife which is so often overlooked by tourists.
Part 1:
Trapdoors, Tyrants, and Tadpoles
Produced bv CHRISTOPHER PARSONS from the South and West
The delights of Jamaica as a holiday playground are familiar enough, but what does the island offer to the naturalist? Last year a party of Oxford zoologists and film-makers spent a long vacation there, and the results can be seen today and next Sunday.
The leader of the expedition was Gerald Thompson , well known for his films of insect behaviour, and the programme will include outstanding film both by him and by Peter Parks , who, using a special photographic method, has produced some of the most remarkable close-ups of minute animal life yet seen on television.

: AND ANOTHER THING ...

with Robert Erskine
Pregnant Image
Perhaps the ancient inhabitants of the Cycladic Islands felt that nature's unpredictable generosity and parsimony was best personified as a capricious goddess, for their commonest image was a little marble female figurine

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.

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