Land of the Lost: The Lost World

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.
Film of the Oxford and Cambridge Expedition to South America.

The mysterious mountain of Roraima, 9,000 feet high, lies at the junction of British Guiana, Venezuela, and Brazil. Its name means 'The Mother of Rivers' and it is believed locally to be the source of all the diamonds found in these parts. In his book 'The Lost World' Sir Arthur Conan Doyle peopled Roraima with dinosaurs and pterodactyls. Three university men on foot find the real thing hardly less hazardous.

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.
