Another Little Drink
Last of a series of film reports by Trevor Philpott
3: ... won't do us any harm
Alcoholism is increasing, and tragically, is increasing most rapidly amongst the very young. The proportion of women alcoholics has trebled over the past ten years. It is a sickness from which no one can ever declare himself safe and for which there is no medical cure. And to the alcoholic, getting liquor and drinking it is all that matters- in life. Mothers will sell the furniture or raid the baby's piggybank, derelicts will beg in the streets or raid liquor stores.
This film explores the alcoholics' world and the struggles of some of the sufferers to find a way out of it.

: The World About Us

Clans of Hunters
Lions, hyenas, wild dogs and badgers - as carnivores, they have one thing in common: they all live in groups. Why? This is the puzzle that Dr Hans Kruuk set out to solve - a puzzle that led him to 18 years of living with these hunters. In Africa the only way these carnivores can kill large prey is by co-operating. To hunt as a team they have evolved a clan existence. But in Britain the badger also lives in groups - so why doesn't it behave like a hyena? Why don't badgers hunt cows?

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.
