: Animal World

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 farmland and away from the shelter of human influence, four feral cats - a mature torn and three females - were studied and filmed for a year. In charge of the project was David Macdonald , who has been able to piece together a picture of the cat which will make us all -whether cat-lovers or not -think quite differently about an animal which for centuries we have taken for granted.
Written and produced by PETER CRAWFORD BBC Bristol

: Prancing and Dancing All Over the Place

For ten days in each year, Sidmouth in East Devon forgets its stately tag and Regency ties to welcome the young people of the world. From Canada and California, Mexico and Marseilles they come by the hundred, as Tony Beard describes, for a swirling carnival of music and dance that lasts from dawn to dawn.

Almost exactly a year ago, Inside Story examined the case of Timothy [text removed] , a hyperactive mongol, whom Solihull Social Services Department were determined to uproot from his residential home in the country to an urban day-care centre in Birmingham. It was a move resisted by Timmy's parents, who fought the Department - and thought that they had won. But this continuation of Timmy's story shows how mistaken the parents were to believe that all was well...

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.
