: The Natural World

The Little Creatures of Africa's
Hidden World
The big mammals are the superstars of Africa. But alongside these large, charismatic beasts is a cast of smaller creatures usually overlooked. For instance, a giraffe might play hostto 50,000 ticks. These and others like them are much more important in maintainingthe balance of nature than the biggame. Working in South Africa's Kruger National Park, award-winning film-makers David and Carol Hughes focus on the fascinating "creepy crawlies" whose lives are often far more astonishingthan those of the gazelles and their predators.
They enterthe catacombs of a termite mound, witness the relentless quest of a deadly fly that needs wasps to help her breed, record the fierce competition for dung among Africa's most important beetles, and shudder at the mini-monsters that hunt after dark. Narrated by Andrew Sachs. Series 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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
