Travellers in Time

Synopsis

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.
Six films of early exploration introduced from the Royal Geographical Society by Duncan Carse 5: Trans-China Expedition (1931)
' If the heat does not kill you, the cold will', such was the warning given to the great Citroen Trans-China Expedition.
The explorers' ordeal is captured in outstanding action photography; vehicles teetering on mountain ledges, bogged down in snowdrifts, almost swept away in fierce torrents. Narrator PIERRE VALMEB
Sweltering in Persia, freezing in the Himalayas, battling through a civil war, this is a remarkable record of a 1931 expedition - which is, of its kind, a minor epic of exploration, (DAILY MAIL) Assistant producer DAWN A. SWERUNG Producer RICHARD ROBINSON

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.
