: JOHNNY MORRIS

in MEXICO
Six films of his jaunt In the sun last August
3: Taxco, Acapulco
You cannot get away from the feeling that you're in some sort of Hollywood film set.... it's like twenty cobblestone Clovellys all bunged into one
Produced by BRIAN PATTEN from the South and West
Taxco is a picturesque silver-mining town scattered over the side of a mountain halfway between Mexico City and Acapulco. Today it is almost exactly as it was in the eighteenth century. In out-of-season Acapulco, with the temperature in the 100s, Johnny explores the beaches, takes a trip in a glass-bottomed boat, and watches the remarkable diving boys at the 150ft. Quebrada Cliff.

: WHICKER'S WORLD

After all, our readers are human beings....
Alan Whicker looks at
TWO SIDES OF FLEET STREET
As a nation, we have an enormous appetite for newsprint: we read more, per head, than any country in the world
Of our nine national dailies perhaps the two most influential are at opposite ends of the scale: Cecil King 's Daily Mirror, read by more than a quarter of the population ... Lord Thomson's Times, read by everyone who ' matters' ... Yet in today's television-educated age, popular and quality papers draw closer together.
What do they say about their role, their power, their influence -the men on the inside who decide what you read? What are they like, what do they think-the men behind the headlines?

: ESTHER AND ABI OFARIM

The internationally famous duo sing songs of many lands
This week's star guest,
DONOVAN
Musical director, JOHNNY PEARSON
Sound, Len Shorey
Design, Peter Brachacki
Production, STANLEY DORFMAN
One record — ' Cinderella Rockafella ' — made Esther and Abi instant stars in Britain. But they have been at the top on the Continent for some years, and their music covers a wide and multilingual range. Each week they'll have a guest star, and the first is Donovan, who is such an admirer Of Esther that he has given her one of his new songs, 'Lord of the Reedy River'—a song which he had said he would give to no one. She sings it tonight, accompanied by Donovan and Abi on their guitars.

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.
