The World About Us: Roof of Japan

In the dragon-shaped group of islands which is Japan, it is said that one is never out-of-sight of a mountain. These are the Japanese Alps, which run down through the main island of Honshu like a backbone. In this volcanic landscape hot springs, bubbling and boiling mud, and roaring vent-holes are all part of a sinister seismography. Snow blankets the peaks in winter, but in spring all kinds of wildlife come out of hibernation or up from the lowlands as the snows melt: Asiatic black bears, foxes, hares, flying squirrels, and a variety of birds.
English commentary written by Derek Williams

The World About Us

Arctic Paradise
On one of the last frontiers - in the Yukon, on the edge of the Arctic Circle, where the winter temperatures can drop to a dramatic 70 degrees below zero - Roger Mendelsohn has chosen to make his home. He lives by fur trapping in winter and salmon fishing in the short summer.
He came from a Toronto suburb, his wife from the warmth of California and together they have had to learn the skills they need to survive in one of the harshest but most beautiful lands in the world. They live with two small children in an isolated log cabin they built themselves. They travel by dog sled in winter and by boat in summer on the Yukon River, their only ' road ' to the outside world.
Now their peaceful pioneer life-style is under threat. The rising price of gold has brought a new Gold Rush to Dawson City, just 30 miles away; their wilderness is now being torn up by the big mining companies; their traps disturbed by tractors: small-scale prospectors are staking their claims in the neighbouring creeks. Their Arctic paradise could soon be destroyed.

The World About Us

Blackbird Backlash
The second of three programmes on Man's conflict with Nature.
As winter sets in, America's vast blackbird population converges on hundreds of multi-million bird roosts in the south-eastern states. Within weeks of their arrival, there is an increasing sense of foreboding as they swarm out each dawn to find food and the wrath of farmers waiting for them in the fields of winter crops.
Welcomed in spring, detested in winter, the 550 million, birds have become a threat to human health, a hazard to aircraft, a winged enemy of man -'fit only for extermination'! Yet, by his conversion of prairie and forests into farmland and cities, perhaps it's man himself, not the birds, who is the cause of the conflict.

The World About Us: A Norwegian Year

A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it.

Commentary by Alan Gibson.
Norway has a small human population, living mainly along the coast, so the vast mountain plateaux and the dense forests of the interior are left to the wildlife: the reindeer, the beaver, the fox, and the beautiful snowy owl. After the darkness of winter, every moment of the summer light must be used by the animals to rear their young to a state of independence before the first snow falls and it is winter once again.

Produced, directed, and written in Norway by Albert W. Owesen.

Horizon: The Cleanest Place in the World

With temperatures always below zero and blizzards driving at 100 mph, Antarctica is no easy place to survive in. Yet there are now more than 2,000 scientists and engineers from 14 countries who put up with the discomforts to study in such a clean and largely untouched environment.
There are Americans trying to answer the question of why cold-blooded fish don't freeze to death in the icy seas. Others are studying the seeming stupidity of the Emperor penguin in nesting not in spring but at the height of winter.
But most teams have come to use Antarctica as a great natural laboratory. From here they can study just who has polluted the earth most - man or nature herself. Using this vantage point to look through the upper atmosphere to the other side of the earth, they may learn more about the weather.
The scientific work in Antarctica, with its far reaching consequences, is dependent on the continent remaining untouched, but already natural gas has been struck and the mountains contain some of the biggest coalfields in the world.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
