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.
This week: Entente Tropicale
A report by Man Alive and French Television on the New Hebrides in the South Pacific.
In a tropical paradise miles from anywhere lies this tiny chain of volcanic islands. By a unique accident of historical convenience they are jointly governed by Great Britain and France. This condominium - a colony of beer and beaujolais, chips and camembert -has two of everything. There are bobbies and gendarmes, lycees and grammar schools, Douanes and Customs, pubs and bistros.
Yet this strange mixed-marriage of government still seems to work - at least for the Europeans.
JIM DOUGLAS HENRY and a Man Alive team make their own entente with DOMINIQUE VIARD and French Television.

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.
