: Realms of the Russian Bear

Continuingthe natural history of the former USSR with the celebrated naturalist Nikolai Drozdov. Siberia - the Frozen Forest. The great
Siberian forest, the taiga, covers 6,000 miles and 1 time zones. Within it lies
Lake Baikal, the oldest, deepest lake in the world. The programme follows Baikal's unique fauna and the creatures of the forest as they adapt to the changing seasons. In Yakutia, the wintertemperature plummets to 70 degrees below zero, yet amazingly, some animals stay right through the worst of the weather conditions. A few endure the full rigours of the climate, while others avoid its harshest excesses hidden beneath the snow.
In May, the late spring is heralded by a spectacular display of the black-billed capercaillie, and on Lake Baikal , massive hatches of caddis flies lure brown bears out of the woods to feed on the shore. Freshwater seats bask on the rocks and underthe water, the lake bed reveals some bizarre creatures that live a mile beneath the surface.
Within weeks, the seasons turn full circle. Chipmunks, birds, bears and even humans harvest the fruits of autumn, before winter tightens its icy grip on the frozen forest once again. Producer John Sparks

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.
