Prince Madoc and the Welsh Indians
Did a Welsh Prince, Madoc ap Owain Gwynedd , discover America 300 years before Columbus? Queen Elizabeth I used the legend to justify her claim to America over that of Philip II of Spain. And even as late as the 18th century at least 15 Indian tribes were identified as Welsh - descendants of the Madoc expedition.
John Evans , a young Welsh minister, in quest of Welsh Indians in 1796, became the first white man to reach the Mandans, whose descendants believe the tribe was brought across the Great Water by Lone Man -who was white!
In this programme, filmed in America, Professor Gwyn Williams of University College, Cardiff, examines the Madoc legend. Narrator PHILIP MADOC

Investigates, Discovers, Questions, With ANNA FORD, JEREMY JAMES
JEANNE LA CHARD , JACK PIZZEY
NICK ROSS , HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week: Welcome to Britain
Some would-be immigrants to Britain must sense a special irony in the welcoming sign at London Airport - assuming they can even read it. Maybe the immigration officer is suspicious - he's paid to be. Too wealthy to be a ' student '? Too poor to be a holiday ' visitor '? Anyway, the immigrant (plus his British passport) is now travelling to the Home Office detention centre at Harmondsworth.
Ben Lewin 's controversial BFI film looks at the way families are split, at the desperation, at the file-shuffling appeal process, and at the pushy Mr Fix-it , who will try to cut through the red tape of the immigration laws - at a price.

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.
