' The Earth and its Inhabitants '-4
' Life in the Tropical Forests '
JAMES RITCHIE (Professor of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen)
Only in a land where there is both great heat and much moisture can the tropical ' rain-forest' nourish. It is a place of strange conditions, for in its depths the light of the sun scarcely penetrates and no breath of wind stirs. So its inhabitants are peculiar, distributed m a series of flats. Some are tree-top animals which live in the sunny attics of the forest and seldom touch the ground : others are confined to the ground, the dark, moist, stuffy cellars of the forest: but all are specially fitted for their particular habitations.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
