Black Umfolozi Rediscovered Told by Laurens van der Post
The fourth of five programmes from The World About Us
For several days and nights, writer LAURENS VAN DER POST and his granddaughter, Emma walked through the bush and slept under the stars in the midst of an African wilderness. Accompanying them were Ian Player , an almost legendary ranger; and a guide and keeper of Zulu history,
Magqubu Ntombela. At night, they heard the haunting cry of baboon hunted by lions and leopards. By day, they explored the country around the crocodile-infested Black Umfolozi , sometimes crossing it to avoid a rhino or two. Above all, this is a record of an English girl experiencing at first hand the impact ot the African wilderness.

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.
