Expedition Egypt: Golden Treasure For 3,300 years one tomb in Egypt's Valley of the Kings kept its secrets, until November 1922 when the English archaeologist Howard Carter made one of the most staggering discoveries of all time. He found the tomb of Tutankhamun and during the following six years more than 2,000 treasures were excavated.
Tina reports from the burial chamber and shows the most famous treasure of all - Tutankhamun's solid gold death mask.

Walking on Coals

A sequel to The White Tribe of Africa, written and presented by David Dimbleby.

Filmed during the recent unrest, the sequel to this award-winning series revisits South Africa today, two years after the first programmes were completed.

Prime Minister P. W. Botha has talked much of change but how far has he gone to meet black aspirations?

David Dimbleby reports on boycotts in the Cape and the tragedy of one family caught up in the aftermath. He finds improved conditions for blacks in the cities but growing poverty in the homelands. Afrikaners are well aware that their future is now at stake, but the decisions on how to retain power may yet split the National Party.
'The Afrikaners', says one black student, 'are walking on coals'. Can they still avoid the flames that threaten to engulf them?

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.
