: The Sunday Film: Khartoum

starring
In 1883, after a British colonel and his Egyptian army were slaughtered by followers of an Arab religious fanatic, General Gordon was sent to Khartoum to evacuate troops and civilians. Gordon however preferred his own, totally different, plan of action and this spectacular film re-creates the tragic results while portraying accurately and sympathetically the complex, idealistic character of the man.

: Everyman: The Power of the Poor

'I am poor. If you're poor they think you're subversive. Therefore I am subversive.'
The words of Carmen Gonzales, a former nun in the Central American state of El Salvador, now local manager of a Catholic aid operation. She is speaking on release from four days of intensive interrogation by the National Guard, charged with distributing bullets along with the bread.
Carmen's words reflect the extraordinary tensions within El Salvador, where to work with the poor is to invite the savage retribution of the rich.
Everyman has been to El Salvador to get first-hand evidence of the Church's involvement in the struggle; an involvement that has led to the murder of priests and nuns, lay workers and an Archbishop, has driven many priests underground or into exile, but which provides the only sense of hope for this bitterly-divided country.

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.
