: The World About Us

Trading to Extinction
Narrated by Hugh Sykes
The wildlife business is booming. Consignments wing their way from the far corners of the world -parrots, tortoises, ivory, crocodile bags, snakeskin belts, fur coats-the list is endless. But supplies are dwindling. Two million crocodiles, half-a-million spotted and striped cats, and 300,000 marine turtles are despatched each year. How much longer can this level of cropping be sustained?
With large profits at stake, poachers and smugglers compete for a slice of this lucrative market. Attempts to crack down on their illicit activity are being stepped up, but they are often one jump ahead.
Can this business be controlled? Over-exploitation is a real threat. Many of our most colourful birds, animals and plants are at risk. New legislation is being drafted, but can we enforce these international safeguards? Will the list of endangered species grow ever longer?

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.
