Timewatch: The Pharaoh's Lost City


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.
5/6. More than 3,000 years ago, the rebel Pharaoh Akhenaten marched his people from Thebes to a desert plain beside the Nile. Within 20 years a huge new city was constructed dedicated to the Pharaoh's new god. This would be a place of abundance overseen by Akhenaten and his gueen Nefertiti. After 25 years of digging, experts offer new evidence based on forensic research, shedding new light on life and death under the rebel pharaoh. Was he really a benign leader or a ruthless despot with a keen eye for propaganda? Narrated by Michael Praed.
Producer John Hayes 'Fisher Another chance to see Timewatch: Bloody Omaha tomorrow. 1125pm

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.
