Asmat
Cannibal Craftsmen of New Guinea Narrated by David Attenborough
Protected by treacherous swamps and a well-earned reputation for headhunting, the New Guinea Asmat have only recently come into contact with the modern world.
They are known for two things - the remarkable quality of their woodcarvings, and the notoriety linked to the death of Michael Rockefeller Jr , anthropologist son of the famous American family - did he drown or was he killed and eaten by the Asmat?
Sudden, violent death plays a prominent part in Asmat life. When a man dies his family must take revenge by killing an enemy and taking his head. Each village contains master-carvers who carve the dead man's likeness into giant ancestor poles 20 or more feet high. In a climactic ceremony the appeased spirit leaves the village for the far-off spirit world of Safan.
Ferocious killers, skilful artists, the vigorous revenge society of the Asmat is also a victim of our world. Headhunting and its ceremonies are forbidden; oil companies have moved into the Asmat swamps; missionaries prepare them for a brave new world dominated by concepts new to the Asmat
- time, work, money.

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.
