: 100 Years of Wildlife Films

In 1907, a flickering film about birds enthralled a cinema audience in Britain. In the 100 years that followed, wildlife films have taken us to places, and revealed images we would otherwise never have seen. With stunning, exciting and sometimes shocking footage, Bill Oddie explores the changing trends throughout the last century, from shooting animals for fun in the 1930s to campaigning to save them from extinction today. Bill highlights the passionate, eccentric and pioneering individuals who have often risked life and limb to break new boundaries in wildlife films.
Director/Producer Clare Brook First shown on BBC4
The Blue Planet is tomorrow at 6pm


Unknown: Bill Oddie

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.
