: Wildlife Showcase

A series of eight prize-winning films from different parts of the world.
6: Koalas-Out on a Limb The koala bear is loved worldwide for its cuddly image. But the 'bear' facts can be very misleading - the koala is not a bear, but a marsupial.
Once very numerous, it has become a rare sight nowadays, and one destined to become rarer still. This film from Australia made by LARRY ZETUN takes an in-depth look at the koala, and reveals that koalas are dying in their thousands, because of a condition closely related to venereal disease.
Presented for TV by GEORGE INGER BBC Bristol

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
