: Omnibus: African Sanctus

Tonight's programme is the story of a remarkable journey made by the composer/explorer David Fanshawe
That journey inspired a unique composition - energetic and exuberant, like the composer himself - a setting of the Latin Mass incorporating actual ' field ' recordings discovered as Fanshawe hitch-hiked with a tape-recorder 2,000 miles from the Mediterranean down to Lake Victoria and Mount Kenya, and from the mountains of West Sudan right across to the coast of the Red Sea.
The film retraces the places he visited and the people he met-an enormously colourful range, from belly-dancers in Cairo to Masai warriors, and shows how these impressions sparked off the creative imagination of a young Englishman as he travelled through a modern Africa that is changing constantly.

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.
