The Greatest Show in the West
It's like a fever ... it gets hold of you and you can't leave it alone.
Over 70 years ago Fred Betty , MBE, caught Carnival fever in Bridgwater and he still hasn't recovered. Symptoms are a joyous lunacy which makes people join Carnival clubs, each one conveniently based in a pub. They spend every waking hour - and sacrifice holidays - working on an act for the Carnival concert and on the float for the procession.
Carnival fever becomes an epidemic in November as the massive floats, covered in thousands of lights, awash with music and splendour, parade through the streets raising funds for local charities. Bridgwater justly boasts that there's nothing else like it in the country, or in the world.

The Long Long Walkabout
The Australian Aborigines are different from the rest of humanity: their origin and past has long been one of the great mysteries. Now, the far ranging detective work of Australian scientists, led by PROFESSOR N. W. G. MACINTOSH , has revealed a story stretching back 50,000 years ago to southern China.
Step by step, the film follows Macintosh's investigation: to a sacred mountain whose hollow interior is the tomb of a whole tribe; to tropical jungles where a last few Aborigines still live in ancient style; to desert dunes in Australia's outback where lie the remains of what was once the most sophisticated society in the world; and to caves in the Philippines where bat excrement has preserved vital clues to the origin of all mankind.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
