Dr. Koch introduces some recordings new and old of the voices of the fallow deer, red deer, and other woodland creatures, and tells how he made the original recordings at the request of his friend Paul von Hindenburg on the President's estate in Germany, and later published them in a sound-book called The Wood Resounds.

: 'THE COOKING-POT OF ALI BEG '

A story of the great trek of the Kazakh people out of Communist Central Asia across Tibet and the Himalayas, based on survivors' accounts taken down by Godfrey Lias for his book ' Kazakh Exodus'
Script by Francis Watson
The cast includes:
Marjorie Westbury , Christopher Rhodes
Aus' in Trevor, John Dearth
Norman Wynne. Stanley Beard
Alec Ross. Eric Francis
Peter Augustine , Elizabeth Melville and William Eedle
Production by Maurice Brown
Forced out of their ancient grazing-lands by the advance of Communism-first from Russia and Outer Mongolia and finally from China-the Kazakhs of the Altai and Tien Shan fought as long as they could and then took the only remaining routes of escape, southward over desert and mountain and the unknown high plateau of Tibet. Thousands attempted the journey in scattered groups, and thousands perished.
This is the story of one group, under the leadership of Ali Beg , which got through to Kashmir in 1951 and finally found refuge in Turkey, where the musical recordings used in the programme were made.

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.

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.
