People of the Red Ochre
' The Masai don't like being filmed, the last man who tried was speared ... '. With these words a local Police Chief in Kenya's Rift Valley welcomed Worldwide. The experience highlights the uniqueness of a documentary recently made by Kenya's own television on the tribe. In the last of Worldwide's trilogy on Black African television, Richard Kershaw introduces this rare film on Masai life and ritual.

This week: Hasn't It Got te Stop?
Some say the message of the Peace Movement is the most hopeful news from troubled Ulster for some time. Its leaders, Betty Williams , Mairead Corrigan and Ciaran McKeown , have captured the imagination of the world. But in Northern Ireland the Peace
Movement faces criticism from many who believe it to be misguided or irrelevant. Anna Ford and Jeanne la Chard look at the pressures on ' The Peace People.'

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.
