A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
11: The Hunters and Hunted
Succulent leaves, shoots and roots are an abundant form of food and all over the world many mammals have adopted a life of browsing, grazing and gnawing. While these vegetarians grow fat on plant food, they in turn are hunted by a variety of meat eaters.
This eternal duel between the hunters and the hunted is one of the driving forces of evolution. As the hunters develop speed and cunning, the prey becomes increasingly fast and wary in order to stay alive, and nowhere is this seen better than on the plains of East Africa.

: Grapevine

Coping with Cancer
What would you do if the doctor advised you that you had only months to live? A young woman decided to ring her local radio station and ask other listeners to help. It happened at BBC Radio Nottingham - and the self-help show tells what this led to. Perhaps the same could happen in your town? Some BBC Local Radio stations will continue the debate from tomorrow - you are invited to ring your local station and take part on-air.
Presenter Jeni Barnett also shows how, in Northern Ireland, mums who felt isolated got together to run a mother and toddler group for the whole Portrush community.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
