The British Academy Award-winning series of ten programmes 6: The Story ef
Charles Montague Doughty and his extraordinary journey through Arabia in 1876 Written by DAVID HOWARTH Introduced by David Attenborough from the Royal Geographical Society, London.
It was a lunatic idea. He dressed as an Arab while boasting he was a Christian. The fierce nomads of the desert would surely kill Charles Doughty on sight. There was little hope for him. Yet this strange and intense Englishman was determined to try to reach the Holy City of Mecca, religious capital of the Moslem Empire. His journey was a catalogue of appalling suffering. Many times he nearly perished. But years later Lawrence of Arabia was to report that since his journey Doughty had become something of a Bedouin legend. The Arabs told tales of him.
The series goes from strength to strength, (OBSERVER)
Vivid excitement. (SUNDAY MIRROR)
To my mind closer to the essence of desert living than the large-scale romantic film ' Lawrence of Arabia '.

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.
