: Wild Down Under

6/6. New Worlds. It has taken almost 50 million years for Australia's weird and wonderful wildlife to evolve - yet over the past two centuries, "progress" has led to the sad demise of more than 50 species. Many animals, however, are thriving alongside humans as never before, and in unexpected places - there are koalas at railway stations, kangaroos on the golf course and massive lizards among the air-conditioning reservoirs. Narrated by Matt Day.

Both profoundly deaf, they believe it will be easier to bond and communicate with a child who shares their experiences and culture. This revealing film follows them in the weeks leading up to the birth and the testing of their baby's hearing at two days old. Director Lorraine Charker ; Executive producer Lynn Alleway

This Is Palestine What do you do for entertainment if you live in the middle of a war zone? Director Azza El-Hassan 's thought-provoking film for Storyville, which documents daily life in her home town of Ramalleh, is a testament to her neighbours' struggle for normality in the face of constant fear and uncertainty. And with the threat of violence severely limiting locals' activities, filming becomes the main event, especially for a group of children.
Series editor Nick Fraser The Settlers, about Israelis in Palestinian Setf-rule Territory, tomorrow 11.20pm

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.
