4: Man chooses a sensible place to live at last With the passage of time the climate - and therefore the vegetation - of the world changed, the forests giving way to grasslands. Our ape-like ancestors had to adapt themselves to the new conditions and only the fittest survived. judy the chimpanzee challenges a man, and both discover that they can perform similar tasks, like climbing ropes and swinging on a trapeze; but can she compete with man in the way he uses his hands and brain?

This week: Firstborn
A film that has taken more than 18 months to make. Two couples: Ally and Mike Scandrett-Smith , and Pat and Peter Robinson ; both had their first babies last year:
Now two baby boys are growing up.
But the film starts long before then, lives with the couples through pregnancy, birth, and looks at the beginning of childhood, It looks, too, at what happens to couples, adjusting as they are to a world that is two, Who must then face the further adjustment of being three. Two's a couple - three's a family.
The arrival of a firstborn is something special. There is nothing qUite like it. It can never happen again. Children are said to make a marriage, but they can also strain a relationship. And couples must learn to adjust and grow.
This is the story of how two couples waited for, and went through, the arrival of their firstborn.
Director DIANNE FARRIS gulled by DESMOND WILCOX and BILL MORTON

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.
