Twenty-five young people from Somerset set out on an expedition to Ghana in West Africa.
In today's film they tell how they celebrated a Christmas with their Ghanaian hosts' families and enjoyed traditional Ghanaian food. As well as visiting castles, joining in with the fishermen and buying souvenirs in the markets, they went for a 50-mile trek through tropical rain forests and helped a remote village to build a new school.

Paul McCartney and Wings
From the earliest recording session of WINGS, the band is followed through its last major world tour. Problems created by fans, security and setting up for each gig are contrasted with a spectacle of the large American and Australian concerts, and the solitude of Paul and Linda's family life on the Mull of Kintyre.
Among the dozen or so songs are Band on the Run ', 'Jet', 'Live and Let Die ' and a moving solo performance of ' Yesterday '.

The Black Lamb of Bethlehem by ROSEMARY HARRIS
" The black lamb stood on its head and twirled like a top; rebounded from Balthazar's knees and collided with frail Caspar's, knocking him into Melchior's arms. Kings and caskets went flying in a higgledy-piggledy heap.'

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
