: The World About Us

Tibet
The second of two programmes The Bamboo Curtain Falls
By 1950 the days of the old Tibet were numbered. The writing on the wall was in Chinese characters. That mysterious, forbidden Tibet, walled off from the rest of the world, behind the Himalayas and seen by only a handful of foreigners, was about to be swept away for ever.
The Chinese had long claimed Tibet to be part of China. This film, compiled from hitherto unseen film of both Chinese and Tibetan origin, shows what went on in Tibet after the Chinese take-over of the country: the journey the Dalai Lama made to Peking in 1954; the uprising of the Tibetans against the Chinese; the flight into India of the Dalai Lama and 100,000 Tibetans; the destruction of a culture-out of some 3,000 monasteries, parts of only 13 are believed to remain today.

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.
