The Incredible Human Journey

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.
4/5. Australia. Miraculously preserved footprints and human fossils buried in the Outback suggest that humans reached Australia thousands of years before they arrived in Europe. How could they have travelled so far from Africa, crossing the open sea? In India, new discoveries among the debris of a super volcano hint that our species started the quest much earlier than previously thought, while in Malaysia genetics point to an ancient trail still detectable in the DNA of tribes today. Dr Alice Roberts also goes in search of the first cavemen of Borneo and tests out a Stone Age raft, before coming to a potent conclusion. Producer Edward Bazalgette ; Producer Paul Bradshaw Showing in HD on the BBC HD channel on Tuesday at 9pm

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.
