: THE WORLD ABOUT US

A series of films from all over the world about cur astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it
FOREST AND FIREBIRD
Narrated by Cy Grant
The wildlife of Trinidad is as colourful and exciting as the calypso island itself. The Swedish film-maker Jan Lihdblad spent over a year there filming quaint, gorgeous, and sinister creatures.
As well as the exotically plum-aged birds of the dense rain forest of the north, there are such attractive arboreal creatures as the tree porcupine and the silky ant eater. Danger threatens from the monsters in the marshes, the giant anacondas that lurk in the pools waiting to grab a victim and pull it-or him-underwater to drown. For light relief there are the fiddler crabs, dementedly waving their huge claws.
A great variety of birds breed
In enormous colonies in the mangrove swamps. All are beautiful but none is as spectacular as the scarlet ibis, which, with its flame-coloured plumage, must rank as one of the seven wonders of the bird world.
Poachers after their feathers drove them out of haunts on the coasts of South America, and even in this refuge, the Trinidad Caroni swamp, they are not safe from the hunters' guns.
Filmed and directed by JAN LINDBLAD
Presented for television by Suzanne Gibbs from the South and West

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.
