: The World About Us

This week a new film by Heinz Sielmann who calls it
The Return of the Gone Ones
' Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?'...
Certainly our ancestors who saw them as a threat and a nuisance to their livestock. They had a similar distrust of wildcats, lynx and bears, too.
In the last few hundred years, as industrial and agricultural development have swallowed up Europe's forest and marsh, other animals - such as beavers and otters -have joined the ranks of the ' nuisance ' animal. Squeezed out of their habitat, trapped and shot, they have become rarer and rarer -some to the point of extinction. Now attitudes are changing and, to many, wildlife has a new meaning. Already beavers are being bred and reintroduced into the wild. HEINZ SIELMANN believes we can go further. He sees lynx as a natural regulator of an increasing deer population; and he hopes that one day even wolves will roam the forests of Europe again. Introduced by HEINZ SIELMANN Narrated by ANTHONY SMITH

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.
