Kenya has the highest rate of population growth in the world, and also depends heavily on tourism. Fergus Keeling talks to anthropologist Richard Leakey about how this is affecting the country's wildlife. He also visits a tree nursery owned by the Green Belt
Movement, whose aim is to reclothe Kenya in 'a cloak of green', and comes face to face with a colony of tree hyraxes - reputed to be the nearest living relatives to the elephant. Producer MILES BARTON BBC Bristol

Two Hundred Years of the US Constitution
The document that gave America a Presidency,
Congress and the Supreme Court, still gives its citizens their rights.
On Constitution Day, Jonathan Steinberg , American-born
Cambridge historian, reports on a voyage of rediscovery. The way policemen arrest criminals, judges run schools, women can have abortions - nothing, he finds, is beyond the reach of the Constitution.
Producer JULIAN HALE
1: At Play
Jenny Danks talks to a variety of women (and the occasional man) about how they organise their lives at home, at play and at work.
This week she discovers why most women hate going into pubs alone, who wants a new man, who's sticking to the old - and why the only good husband is a tall one.
Producer JENNY DE YONG
Myth and Reality
Threatened with the prospect of residential care. Rod and Gill Surrage , a young couple, both disabled, piece together the story of their struggle to find adequate help to enable them to remain at home and in the community. It is a story that reflects the anomalies and ignorance which exist at every level and which all disabled people striving to remain independent, or to obtain their independence, must encounter and overcome.

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.
