2/2. With very few of the endangered species held in captive-breeding programmes within zoos actually able to be returned to the wild, Rosamund Kidman-Cox asks what species zoos should be breeding and how the animals that remain in zoos can contribute to the conservation of their wild cousins. Captive breeding in the animal's native home has proven to be more successful and new partnerships between conservation organisations and zoos might be the answer. Are zoos doing enough for conservation on the ground in terms of financial support and what do the world's conservation biologists and the zoos themselves think their future role Should be? Producer Sheena Duncan

New series 1/7. Iconic Walks: the Ulster Way
Clare Balding starts a new series that will see her 100th edition of the programme with a series of iconic walks, beginning with the coastal pathway from the Giant's
Causeway to White Park Bay, perhaps the most dramatic section of the 560-mile Ulster Way in Northern Ireland. Against the spectacular scenery, there is a plethora of myth and history, including sunken Armada ships, fairy-tale castles and reputedly the world's tiniest church.

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.
