: Wildlife Showcase

A series of eight prize-winning films from different parts of the world.
7: Where Fish Stand in Line This fascinating film, made by ROLF MOLTGEN of West Germany, was very highly acclaimed at the Wildscreen 84 Festival.

Cleaner fish are allowed to swim between the jaws, teeth and gills of the predators without being gobbled up - it's a privilege only they can enjoy because of the valet services they provide.

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.
