Seven programmes in which professional and amateur zoologists talk about the behaviour of animals and the ways in which it can be studied.
5 — Mammals
The behaviour of mammals living in the wild in this country is less easy to observe than that of birds, because many of them are rather shy and are more active at night than during the day. But with the help of observations made on hand-reared animals, recent studies have shown how much mammals can learn compared with lower groups of animals and yet how much of their behaviour seems to follow an instinctive pattern. Mammals whose behaviour is described in this programme include badgers and otters, house mice and bats.

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.
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.
