: THE TRAVELLERS

Tibet
Few Europeans have travelled widely in Tibet, partly because it is geographically remote but mainly because since the Chinese invasion it has been a closed country. It retains, however, a strong hold on the European imagination and those who have once come under its spell keep in touch as far as possible. Three such men discuss it in this programme.
H.R.H. Prince Peter of Greece and Denmark first visited Tibet in 1938; has a home in Kalimpong from which he conducts research into the lives of the 20,000 Tibetans who visit the market there each year; was leader of the Danish Scientific Mission to Afghanistan and Central Asia in 1953 Marco Pallis musician, and author of a book about Tibet entitled Peaks and Lamas; has stayed and studied in a number of Tibetan lamaseries and published a book in Tibetan
Hugh Richardson C.I.E., O.B.E., D.S.O.
Officer in charge of the British Mission to Lhasa, 1936-40 and 1946-47, after that represented the Indian Government in Tibet; part-author of a Tibetan-English dictionary

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
