The Ten Thousand Faces of the World

Robin Day and Michael Barratt
Roderick MacFarquhar

Tonight's edition includes:
NEIGHBOURS OF THE GIANT
To the south of Mao Tse-tung 's China, the nation of 700 million people which has become the world's latest nuclear power, are the small countries of South-East Asia - among them Malaysia, Thailand, and South Vietnam
Michael Charlton reports from the uneasy neighbours of the giant
Associate producer. Richard Francis Assistant editor, Christopher Railing
Editor, DAVID WHEELER
Panorama AT 8.25
EVERY now and again, when ' The Window on the World' is opened on a new corner of the globe, one of its team of reporters comes back with a souvenir from the country he has visited. John Morgan has returned from China with a new subtitle for Panorama which in future will replace the time-hallowed words ' Window on the World.' The new one, which you can see above, is the result of a request by Morgan for a translation of ' Panorama.' As it happens there is no exact parallel in Chinese and the characters mean literally 'The Ten Thousand Faces of the World.' Probably the Chinese very logically say that one cannot look at the world through a window but that by going round with a camera and a microphone you might see some of its 10,000 faces. Anyway 'The Ten Thousand Faces of the World' will be used from now on.'

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.
