Animal behaviour and survival 4: Hunters in the Reef
The fish of a Red Sea coral reef provide a colourful spectacle for tourists. For biologists, each fish specialisation raises fascinating questions. How is it that one fish can find safety in an anemone's tentacles and yet not be eaten by it? How is one kind of trigger fish able to feed on spiky sea urchins? Answers to these and other questions are sought in a remarkable series of underwater experiments. Narrator rr CH FALKUS

Acupuncture
A Chinese Puzzle
Acupuncture works in the Orient but can it work here? For years the fringe medics have said 'yes': the establishment no.' But attitudes are changing.
Extraordinary film from China shows how acupuncture is used there as an anaesthetic for major surgery and as a cure for illness. Equally extraordinary is the film of some of the very first attempts in Britain to evaluate acupuncture scientifically.
If acupuncture is all that it seems to be, is it time we took it seriously?

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.
