: The Discovery of Animal Behaviour

A natural history in six parts celebrating animals in action, narrated by Andrew Sachs
3: Search for the Mind
A crow with a taste for sherry, caterpillars which go around endlessly in circles, a dog which opens doors, homing cats and beavers with an amazing skill for controlling water these and many others reveal the secrets of the animal mind.
Through his theory of evolution, Charles Darwin caused Victorian naturalists to seek signs of human-like thoughts and feelings in our fellow creatures.
Under his influence George Romanes constructed a 'theory of mental evolution' which elevated animal mentality to human-like levels.
But Douglas Spalding , a teacher, was sceptical and devised tests to see what skills animals were bom with! Jacques Loeb - a German - believed animals were 'mindless mechanisms' and designed ingenious ways of proving it.

: Chronicle: Lost City of the Incas

Where was the final refuge of the last Inca? For centuries rumours and legends have abounded-rumours of treasure waiting to be discovered; of palaces and temples lost in the jungles of Peru. In 1911 the first serious exploration began when Hiram Bingham, a young American, set out to find the elusive 'Vilcabamba'. In one spectacular journey he discovered Machu Picchu, a site perched on a mountain top, which has since become a tourist Mecca.

Bingham became convinced that this was indeed the lost city of the Incas. But he was wrong. Documents have recently come to light which disprove Bingham's theory and David Drew, an archaeologist who has worked in Peru for many years, has been studying them. In an expedition specially sponsored by Chronicle he sets out to follow in the Incas' footsteps, struggling over mountain passes, through rivers and along narrow swampy trails to find ancient Vilcabamba, the last Inca capital.

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.
