: The Light of Experience

Experiences of joy, sorrow, bereavement, doubt - or inner moments of truth that may defy rational explanation.
In these programmes people are invited to give first-hand accounts of something that has real personal significance for them. 4: A Birth of Hope
Last November Bel Mooney gave birth to a boy. He was born very small, perfectly formed, but dead. I do not wish to get over his loss; nor do I wish to replace him with more children. I simply wish that his life and death should be absorbed into my own, deepening my perception.'

: The World About Us

Te Korero: Myths and realities from the South Pacific Islands
In the Maori language, Te Korero means stories. This film, which is part musical, part documentary, tells some of the stories of the South Seas, entirely in the words and music of the Pacific peoples themselves. There are myths of the creation of the universe out of darkness, legends about the epic migrations across thousands of miles of oceans, and songs and dances about the realities of today -most especially the new migration of the South Pacific people, forced on them by the pressures of the modern world.

: The Lively Arts

A Portrait of Nadlne Gordimer Introduced by Melvyn Bragg
' The facts ' says NADINE GORDIMER , * are always less than what really happens - the facts are just on the surface-it's what makes the facts.' Nadine Gordimer is one of South Africa's leading short story writers and novelists-a remarkable writer and compelling woman.
The mounting crisis in Southern Africa makes daily news on the front pages. Nadine Gordimer is a writer who takes us behind the headlines. In her stories she shows us the lives of South Africans, black and white, from the inside. She is not a directly political writer and yet, as she herself points out, it is through living in South Africa that she has learnt just how deeply people can be affected by their political circumstances.
MELVYN BRAGG interviewed her in London for this 2nd House production. The programme includes scenes from her work.
Something for the Time Being
The setting is Johannesburg, and a black township - around 1960.
An extract from
The Late Bourgeois World
A private school, near Johannesburg: the period is about 1970.

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.
