The World About Us: The Blue-Veiled Men

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.
A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the people who live on it
This is the story of a group of men who set off to walk 900 miles across the Tenere desert in the southern part of the Sahara. They are members of the nomadic Lazouane tribe called Tuaregs, and their haughty camels carry millet to barter for salt in the oasis of Bilma. The twentieth century has left these desert traders completely untouched. To us it is a remarkable journey, but for the Tuaregs part of their everyday life.

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.
