: The Natural World

Sulawesi: an Island Bewitched
Lying at the heart of Indonesia in South-East Asia is an exotic island of lush jungle, smouldering volcanoes, burning black beaches and vivid coral gardens that is underthreatfrom human rapacity.
Sulawesi was created by the collision of the Asian and Australasian land masses, and as a result two distinct sets of animals were brought together and produced unusual hybrids, 98 per cent of which are unique to Sulawesi.
There are weird and wonderful species, from crested monkeys, giant snakes, birds that incubate their eggs with the heat of volcanoes, to bizarre pigs whose twisted tusks cut into their cheeks - many of them caught on camera forthe first time by Emmy Award-winningfilm-maker Andrea Florence.
These animals are notjust comical oddities. They play a vital role in regeneratingthe island by spreading the seeds of the trees. But nature's most powerful enemy - the human race - is threatening to upset the balance of nature in a thoughtless pursuit of wood forfumiture, animals as trophies and gold. Narrated by Ian Holm.

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.
