: GREAT ZOOS

of the world
A grand tour of some of the outstanding European and American zoos with Anthony Smith
S: FRANKFURT
One Man and his Zoo
Wherever you go in Frankfurt you will see a signpost to the zoo, and wherever you go in the zoo you will very soon know who is in charge. Whether you visit one of the animal enclosures or an amazing building called the Exotarium it will be the voice of the Director, Dr. Bernhard Grzimek, that you will hear either from specially placed loudspeakers or on a pocket-sized radio receiver. His voice is one of the best known in Germany. He has his own nation-wide animal programme on television, with an audience of millions. He writes books, edits magazines, makes films, influences public opinion with hard-hitting articles in the newspapers, and has an international reputation in the world of conservation.
What sort of influence does Dr.
Grzimek have on Frankfurt Zoo, on the sort of animal collection it has, on the way the animals are displayed? How important is it to have one man in charge? And if you have one man, what sort of a man should he be?
Produced by PETER CRAWFORD
Series editor, NICHOLAS CROCKER from the South and West

: CAMERON COUNTRY

Whoever created Venice knew exactly the proper physical fashion in which people should be allowed to live. One thing is sure: no one will ever make such a place again ... I must see Venice while Venice is still there
VENICE-THE VANISHING LADY
In tonight's film James Cameron visits Venice in the autumn of her years. The fabulous city is sinking, threatened both by the lagoon and by the stinking modern towns that sprawl on her horizons.

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.
