The Pride by DAVID HELTON
A male lion's main concern is fights. His purpose in life is not to be the great hunter of the plains but to defend his lionesses (who are great hunters) from other male lions. For more than 25 years, a single population of lions in the Serengeti has been under continuous, daily detailed study by a succession of field bioligists who have revealed just what a lion's life is like. The 'biography' of Split-ear, which is based on this study, follows a male lion (and his brother and his cousin) from cubhood to hunting lessons, to bachelor wanderings, to pride proprietorship and beyond. Narrators Barry Paine and Fergus Keeling

Tumtitititumtitititumtum Love it or loathe it, Ravel's Boléro is one of the most performed pieces in the concert repertoire. For 338 out of 340 bars the drums beat out the hypnotic rhythm which has pulled in the crowds since its first performance in 1928. Ravel himself described it as a joke, but what about the musicians who have to play it over and over again? For conductor Bramwell Tovey , it's full of great moments; Jack Brymer thinks it's like being hit behind the ear with a sock full of wet sand; and trombonist and side-drummers get a severe case of the 'pearlies'. Musicians, impresarios and the words of Ravel comment on Boléro. Producer RICHARD BANNERMAN

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.
