Seven programmes in which professional and amateur zoologists talk about the behaviour of animals and the ways in which it can be studied.
The great majority of the known species are invertebrates, animals with no spinal cord and a relatively simple nervous system. Of these, some, such as sea-anemones and limpets, are capable of only very simple behaviour; others, such as the octopus and many insects, lead more complicated lives and to some extent can learn and remember. Fishes are the simplest of the vertebrates, animals with a spinal cord like our own.
In this programme the speakers describe the behaviour of some of these animals and consider how far it can be related to the complexity of their nervous systems.

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.
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.
