: Taxidermy: Stuff the World

An eye-opening look into the bizarre world of taxidermy as enthusiasts prepare to compete at the world championship in America. Among those looking to artistically resuscitate the dead is "taxidermy god" Ken from Canada, who is trying to mount a life-sized prehistoric great elk, while nine-year-old crack shot Victoria is parading a deer she shot herself. But can British expert Jack, who has teamed up with Peter from Denmark, win with their mounted bird?

PICK OF THE DAY Even an extinct Irish elk can be brought to life, thanks to Canadian Ken and the magic of stuffing
Taxidermy: Stuff the World 9.00pm BBC2
This is just the kind of funny, intimate, thoughtful film that TV does so well. Director Morgan Matthews peeks into the arcane world of taxidermy, following a judiciously chosen group of devotees in the run-up to the world taxidermy championships in Illinois. The result is both creepy and beguiling.
There's Jeanette, determined to make it in a man's world, who keeps elk testicles in her freezer; wild-eyed former world champion Matthias, who is disillusioned with his craft and awaits word from God on whether to defend his title; and nine-year-old Victoria, affectionately known as "Killer", who is a dab hand with a rifle and dreams of shooting a deer.
They inhabit a fiercely competitive world. But it's the glimpses into their private lives that make this film so winning. And the soundtrack by Sam Hooper is brilliant. Alison Graham Inside job: page 20

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.
