Operation Raleigh


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.
5: Not Quite Paradise
For most young people, an Operation Raleigh expedition is a chance to live and work with remote communities all over the world. For a few it provides an opportunity to make a film. Tonight's film, the fifth in a series of six, is made by a team from the Royal College of Art. Thirty distinguished scientists and 150 Raleigh venturers are working in a remote and largely unexplored jungle island in eastern Indonesia. Three months' supplies have to be carried in by boat and on foot; there are no roads and helicopters cannot approach the island because of the dense cloud which covers it. For the Operation Raleigh staff it is a challenge to keep track of the different groups working - without radios - across 700-square miles of uncharted jungle. No matter how much preparation goes into an operation of this kind, it is in the nature of expeditions that the unexpected will happen ... Directed by SMON SHORE Edited by PAUL SHEPARD

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.
