For the Schools: Regional Geography: The Andean Republics: 1: Desert Coastlands


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.
L. Dudley Stamp, DSc
You will remember that a fortnight ago you arrived with Dr Dudley Stamp at Guayaquil, chief port of Ecuador. Today you are to travel south with him on the same steamer as you were on before, and this time you will arrive at the port of Talara, in the extreme north of Peru - notable for the discovery of oil there. Though you will have come only a little way south of the Equator, the whole appearance of the country will have changed. You will see for the first time the great stretch of desert which runs southward along the coast of South America, throughout the country of Peru, and through the northern half of Chile, for something like two thousand miles.

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.
