Jomo Kenyatta with John Freeman
Editor, New Statesman
God created Gikuyu and Mumbi and placed them in Kikuyu land, but they were deceived bv the European and their land was stolen from them. I will never abandon fomo; he has promised that our land shall be returned to us. Hymn 19 of the Kenya African Union
Hymn Book used by Mau Mau
/ have done my best and if all other people had done as I have done, Mau Mau would not be as it is now. You have made it what it is, not Kenyatta.
Kenyatta at his trial
Non-Africans who still want to be called bwana (master) should pack up and go, but others who are prepared to live under our flag are invited to remain. Kenyatta at Dar Es Salaam,
1961
You have been too long in high and privileged positions. You must change your heart. Remember we are citizens of Kenya on an equal status and if you do that you will have nothing to fear. Kenyatta at a luncheon in Nairobi,
October 1961
I spent so many happy hours on the South Downs, a place where a man got time to think. I used to take my lunch to eat on the crest of the Downs and then walk down to have tea in Arundel by the castle.
Sometimes I gave four lectures a day to troops on lonely gun-sites on the coast. My subjects at that time were colonial affairs and anthropology.
SUNDAY EXPRESS
They're just two of my old friends. They were taken from me when I was arrested. I think the Governor thought I had all the juju in them. Kenyatta talking about his elephant-headed stick and his gentian stone ring

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 from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
