: A Listen and Learn Series THE ANIMALS' WORLD

Seven programmes in which professional and amateur zoologists talk about the behaviour of animals and the ways in which it can be studied.
2-Living Simply
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.

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.
