Gilgamesh by ALEC REID with Christopher Scott as Gilgamesh Sean Barrett as Enkidu Max Wall as the Ferryman andIanHolmasEnlil
Gilgamesh, King of Uruk, was born two-thirds god and one-third man, five generations after the creation of the world. As a bargain for making peace among the gods, the great god Enlil demanded the right to control their destiny - a power so great that
Gilgamesh himself could not escape it.

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.
