The Ra Expeditions by THOR HEYERDAHL translated by PATRICIA CRAMPTON adapted for radio In ten parts by NAN MACDONALD
Published yesterday, this is a new adventure by the explorer of the world-famous Kon-Tiki. 1: An Unsolved Mystery
I I wanted to find out something.... I wanted to find out if the ancient Egyptians themselves had originally been seafarers, before they settled down to become sculptors, Pharaohs and mummies. I wanted to find out if a reed-boat could withstand a sea voyage of 250 miles, the distance from Egypt to Lebanon. I wanted to find out if a reed-boat would be able to sail even further - I wanted to find out if a reed-boat could make the journey to America Reader John Justin

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.
