: GREAT ZOOS OF THE WORLD

A grand tour of some of the outstanding European and American zoos with Anthony Smith
6: LONDON
A living library
In a corner of Regent's Park, covering thirty-six acres, is one of the oldest and most respected zoos. As a living library of the animal kingdom its comprehensive collection of species has commanded worldwide public and scientific acclaim.
As well as its animals, the Zoological Society of London has to maintain research establishments and an important zoological reference library, and this has to be done against a background of limited funds, restricted space, the time-consuming process of democratic planning and, like so many of the older European zoos, the complexities of a major rebuilding programme. How does London keep pace with rapidly changing ideas and techniques in order to maintain its place in the vanguard of great world zoos?

: THE ROAD TO GETTYSBURG

.... The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced, It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion-that toe here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
A dramatic chronicle of the Civil War between the Northern and Southern States of America which culminated in a bloody and heart-breaking battle, and led to one of the most stirring statements in modern history — Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address. with the voices of David Carradine as the Rebel and Kevin McCarthy as the Yank Written and narrated by JOHN H.

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.
