I The Natural World Buffalo - the African Boss. Perhaps the most dangerous of Africa's large animals, buffalos can weigh up to a massive 1500lbs and are equipped with horns capable of ripping through skin and flesh with consummate ease. The king of these remarkable creatures is the Cape buffalo.
Despite this fearsome reputation, these buffalos are also among the most loyal and caring of beasts, regularly risking their lives to protect other members of their herd. They are highly sophisticated socially, with each female inheriting her status within the herd from her mother.
In Tanzania's Lake Manyara National Park, which has the highest density of wildlife in Africa, most of the animals live peacefully with the buffalos - but not the lions. Mature bulls have been known to chase adult lions, and buffalos will also attempt to kill lion cubs. See Choice.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
