The last of six films of early exploration
Introduced from the Royal Geographical Society by the pioneer polar explorer Duncan Carse.
Flying Safari (1934) .
'Beneath us we saw more elephants than any human being haa ever seen before ... 10,000 elephants in two hours . . . then a 30-mile border of pink flamingoes round a lake of jade . . . new zebra swept by beneath us by the thousand .. ' So explorer and pioneer photographer Martin John son described the incredible wealth of wildlife that existed in Africa in the 1930s; wildlife which he was now filming from the air for the first time.
With his wife, Osa, Martin Johnson flew over 60,000 miles in their two primitive bi-planes: survived tropical rainstorms, crash-landings and innumerable narrow escapes and brought back a unique picture of now-vanished wildlife, and an enduring story of high adventure.

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.
