: Horizon

Tropical Time Machine
Most science fiction writers have tried to imagine an alternate world where time has broken its banks and flows in a parallel stream down to the present. Madagascar is a tropical time machine that has done just that. When this island continent broke loose from Africa 100 million years ago, it evolved in isolation. So many common wild animals are missing, such as lions, hyenas, hoofed animals, rabbits, monkeys and poisonous snakes; those that are there are unique to Madagascar, like the 20 species of lemur.
Dr Alison Jolly has studied the lemurs of Madagascar for the last 20 years. But what she has to report is that this living museum of evolution is on the verge of destruction. Since man arrived, only 1,500 years ago, slash and burn agriculture, grass fires and hunting have destroyed 80 per cent of Madagascar's forest and threatened many species with extinction. It's a tragic example of Third World economics in conflict with nature.

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.
