: Tiger Crisis

According to wildlife experts there will be no wild tigers left in India by the end of the century. Despite conservation efforts their numbers are dwindling alarmingly. This documentary investigatingthe huge upsurge of the poachingof wild tigers was shown earlier this year but tonight is updated with information about what has happened since the initial broadcast. it combines stunningfootage of tigers with a disturbing report into their plight. It examines the work of Project Tiger, a great conservation success story for nearly 20 years but now apparently losing its grip, and discovers how poachers are slaughtering enormous numbers of tigers to supply the vast Chinese medicine market.
Since the programme was transmitted, there have been heartening moves to safeguard the tiger. Among them is the setting up of a Global Tiger Forum, the largest ever strategy in conservation in which countries will pool expertise and resources to work together for a common aim. There have also been some important arrests and a seizure of tiger products by the Traffic India organisation. But whether it will be enough to save the tiger population remains to be seen - and if the tiger is to disappear, what hope can there be forthe other giant symbols of the conservation movement, such as the panda and the rhino?

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.
