: GREATZOOS

of the world
A grand tour of some of the outstanding European and American zoos with Anthony Smith
5: WEST BERLIN
Germany's oldest zoo
Set in a quiet park not far from the Brandenburg Gate and within a mile of the Berlin Wall, this is a zoo of contrasts-a place where it's not the roar of lions that attracts attention but the sound of pneumatic drills rebuilding a zoo almost totally destroyed twenty-five years ago. But despite the bombing, despite political difficulties, air corridors, and transport problems-food has to be brought some 200 miles from West Germany to keep the animals alive-the zoo has fully regained its international reputation and has the largest animal collection in Europe.
Produced by PETER BALE

: ACROSS THE TOP OF THE WORLD

There are moments when you are very exhausted, when you become almost detached from yourself. You go through a sort of discomfort barrier and from that moment on it's almost delicious. You just plod on endlessly, almost timelessly.
That is how the leader of the British Trans-Arctic Expedition, Wally Herbert , describes the experience of sledging. A few weeks ago he and his three companions completed the longest sustained journey in the history of polar exploration, a journey right across the broken, shifting sea-ice of the Arctic Ocean from Alaska to Spitzbergen. A sledge journey longer than those of Scott or Shackleton, Nansen or Amundsen. A journey of 3,620 miles.
Filmed partly by the BBC and, during the journey itself, by members of the crossing party, this is the story of that journey from the early days of preparation in London in the winter of '67 to the final scramble to make landfall in May this year.

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.
