Garabandal: After the Visions
In 1961 four girls in Garabandal, a remote village in northern Spain, began claiming that they were seeing visions. These visions returned so frequently that visitors with movie cameras were able to film the girls in their trance states. Through these visions, the girls said, God was issuing a warning to the world: ' The cup is filling up, and if we do not change, a great chastisement will befall us '. The chief visionary of Garabandal, Conchita Gonzalez , has since emigrated to America and married. This film tells her story: the visions, the warning to the world, her attempts to hide from her growing fame, and her fears for her own children. If the events she is prophesying come to pass, she says it would be better for her children that they had never been born.

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.
