: Sir Mortimer

The Viceroy sent for me ...
In 1943 Brigadier Wheeler was called away from the battlefields of North Africa and Italy to become Director-General of Archaeology for the Indian subcontinent.
Tonight the second of Chronicle's two films on the life of our greatest living archaeologist takes him from a Roman trading station on the Bay of Bengal to Mohenjo Daro - queen of cities of the great Indus Valley civilisation.
Back in England, in 1954, he was voted Television Personality of the Year for his starring role in Animal, Vegetable, Mineral; almost 20 years later, on the steps of the Parthenon, he still holds an audience in the palm of his hand.
At 82, Sir Mortimer Wheeler is still crusading, still voicing his battle cry: ' One's whole life is devoted to recreating the past and making it live.'

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.
