: We Call Them Killers

Fast and fearless, the killer whale is one of the most powerful and ferocious hunters of the sea. Yet, paradoxically, they display an extraordinarily gentle, confiding and playful nature towards their only natural enemy, man. Like dolphins, they respond to training with intelligence and precision. In this film we join Haida and Chimo, two tamed killer whales at the ' Sealand of the Pacific! aquarium in British Columbia. An NFB of Canada production
Presented by MICHAEL KENDALL (Bristol)

: Max Ernst

How many colours has a hand?
Birds, forests, monsters - and jokes! The life and work of the German Surrealist painter Max Ernst , now in his 80s and living between France and the USA.
This film tells the story of Max Ernst 's dream: from his childhood in the Rhineland, to Paris in the 20s, to the Second World War when the Nazis branded him as a ' degenerate artist.'
Talking about his pictures Ernst said that they're revolutionary and totally unacceptable to any art expert - but ' they have the gift to charm the people on my side: poets, magicians - and a few who can'even read or write .. Narrated by GEOFFREY COLLINS with the voices of TONY CHURCH and DAVID WOOD
Written and directed by PETER schamoni (Tony Church is a member of the RSC)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
