The Archive Hour: Wild Times - David Attenborough at 80

The archive that exists of David Attenborough's broadcasting career spans 50 years of radio and television. His name is synonymous with the natural world around us. From Zoo Quest in the 1950s to the ground-breaking Life on Earth in the 70s to Planet Earth in 2006, he has broadcast from the coldest poles, the hottest deserts, the highest mountains and the deepest oceans, taking worldwide audiences with him on his journeys. The past five decades have also seen the most extraordinary strides forward in television and film-making technology, allowing film-makers to go to more places and return with more intimate and revealing images of the world and its wildlife than ever before - and it continues apace. Here, Attenborough, approaching his 80th birthday, is in conversation with Brian Leith. Producer Sheena Duncan






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.
