: The World About Us: The Curious Cat

Narrated by ELEANOR BRON
Most people have strong feelings about cats; you either like them or dislike them. But few of us have ever glimpsed the private, undomestic world of the ordinary cat. So a unique field study was set up by the BBC and Oxford University, in the heart of the Devon countryside. On open farm-land and away from the shelter of human influence, four feral cats-a mature torn and three females
-were studied for a year. In charge of the project was David Macdonald , who has been able to piece together a picture of the cat in the wild which will make us all think quite differently about an animal which for centuries we have taken for granted.

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.
