: The Lion of Judah: Tuesday's Documentary

A film by Anthony de Lotbiniere
The story of a living legend - His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia
Tracing his descent from King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba this tiny old man now nearing 80 looks back on a reign that has brought Ethiopia out of the Dark Ages, and on a life which more than any other man's symbolises Africa's emergence into the 20th century.
First African to be treated by white men as an equal and the first man to be sacrificed by them in the name of appeasement. He has learnt to trust nobody and yet has won the respect of the world. Father-figure of modern Africa and relic of a vanishing world, he is more of a symbol than a man - the incarnation of the history of our time.
(Haile Selassie has a record no one can equal: page 3)


Director: Anthony de Lotbiniere
Written and narrated by: David Holden
Subject: Haile Selassie

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.
