The Search for El Dorado


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A three-part Everyman series exploring the impact of Christianity on South
America, 500 years after the conquistadores.
1: The Jungle Mission to Majawana
'Our way of speaking will pass away - all our descendants will be proper Venezuelans. We'll be just like the foreigners. That's fine.' (MARIANO, the first
Christian Sanema).
The Sanema tribe is one of the most remote, independent and feared of all the Amazonian Indians. It was only in 1973 that Pastor Hernan Artigas came to
Majawana and carved the first mission out of the rain forest of the Upper Orinoco. For the majority of the Sanema, little has changed since the Stone Age. Life revolves around hunting, story-telling and contact with the forest spirits. But now they are meeting the 20th-century world of Hernan. It is a culture shock from which they may never recover.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
