Almost Human: The Queen's Corgis

How to live with animals and look after them.
Introduced by Di Fisher with Stanley Dangerfield and Peter West.

When the Queen visited the Three Counties Show at Malvern Wells, she watched the judging of the Pembroke Welsh Corgis, which for more than thirty years have had a special place in the life of the Royal Family. There were more corgis on show at Malvern this year than any other breed of dog. Is it royal patronage that makes them popular? Is the corgi an ideal dog for the home? What happens to a working dog like the corgi or labrador when it is bred as a domestic pet?

with the latest news and information on our wildlife. with Su Ingle and Michael Jordan
Do you own a pet tortoise? Have you ever considered it not as a pet but as a wild animal? In a special report from Yugoslavia Wildtrack looks at the wild tortoise in its proper environment. Did you know. for instance, that tortoises can swim? And that they are not solely vegetarians - they eat meat as well.
And two spectacular animals: Mike has been in Scotland filming wildcats and Su's been in Northern Ireland watching one of our most beautiful birds of prey - the peregrine falcon.

The Natural World

The Year of the Rat
Rats - should we like them? Some people hate and despise these rodents. As the Chinese Year of the Rat draws to a close, down on the farm the rats' year goes on. Resourceful and adaptable, these successful invaders have enjoyed our unwitting hospitality for over two centuries.
But this Jekyll and Hyde of animals challenges our prejudices. Is it not also an attractive pet, and a clever animal; and don't we all owe our lives to the rat as a tool of research into good health? This animal opportunist should be watched - even from behind your chair....

Murder Most Horrid: Confessions of a Murderer

Continuing a series of murder-mystery spoofs starring Dawn French.

Harriet Snellgrove dreams of being arrested. But will she resort to murder in a bid to live out her fantasy?
See today's choices.
(Digital widescreen)

Murder Most Horrid 9.00pm BBC2
Meet Harriet Snellgrove, Dawn French's latest incarnation, a woman who calls her pets by the names of TV detectives and whose doorbell plays the Z Cars theme tune. She's "bonkers" according to the long-suffering police sergeant who regularly hears her confessing to crimes that she never committed. "Yes, I am Lord Lucan," says Harriet. No wonder they ignore her story about the missing bank manager.
Writers Ian Hislop and Nick Newman have enormous fun with TV police cliches like the old-style copper versus the university-educated new boss. Metaphorically challenged, the latter can't quite get to grips with the argot and has to be given a helpful nudge now and again ("It's 'Shut it', not 'Close it', sir"). Watch out for a nice little cameo by Graeme Garden as the entire staff of the Nutley Chronicle.

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.
