The fourth of six films that show the beautiful intertwinings of the living things on our varied earth. The Living Rain Forest
Tropical rain forest is superlative. It's got the biggest flower, the longest snake, its orang-utan is the heaviest creature of the trees. It is the richest, most favourable environment for life on land with the greatest number of different plants and animals anywhere.
And yet all this complexity is an ordered balanced system of checks and counter checks. What is more, it is a system that man unbalances at considerable risk, for it is the lung of the world - but a lung in reverse that breathes out the oxygen that we breathe in. Narrated by JEFFERY BOSWALL
Filmed by JOHN MACKINNON Producer RICHARD BROCK (from Bristol)

The Curtain of Silence
What's it like to be deaf? There are more than 2 million people in Britain today who could tell you. It's a disability which can affect anyone at any age, at any time.
Deafness is one of the most crippling afflictions of all. It forms a barrier between the young and education, the teenager and job opportunities, the old and their friends. But in terms of treatment and research it takes a tragically low priority, and is often called the Cinderella of Medicine.
This film shows how the curtain of silence can affect you, and reports on what - if anything - is being done to help.

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.
