continues the season of British films from the 40s and 50s. Starring Trevor Howard , Anouk Aimee
Smuggling, intrigue and murder are part of a world far from the mind of archaeologist David Red fern.

: On the Rock Face

Rock climbers call the sun-baked walls of California's Yosemite Valley vertical desert; vast slabs of rock soar up from the valley floor shimmering in the desert heat. Of all the rock faces El Capitan is the most awe-inspiring. Its summit overhangs the valley floor 3,000 feet below. This award-winning film follows the three days that three climbers spent perilously ascending the rock face. It is tense and exciting.

: The Light of Experience

with Swami Bhavyananda
After 30 years of working as a monk in isolated parts of India, SWAMI BHAVYANANDA was ordered to England to run the British branch of the Ramakrishna Order. When he arrived, he found that the Maharishi and The Beatles had popularised meditation and Eastern religion, and he was expected to be a guru. In tonight's programme he talks about the way a simple Indian monk learned to deal with people desperate for knowledge of Eastern spirituality.

: The Sky at Night

The Perseids
Meteors, or shooting stars, space debris shed by comets travelling round the sun, can produce brilliant displays and the Perseids, seen each year between 27 July and 17 August, are unusually spectacular. They are of special interest during the early 1980s, because the comet associated with them - Swift-Tuttle - is due back having been unobserved for 120 years.
Patrick Moore talks to John Mason , who led an expedition to France to study the Perseids, and looks forward to the return of Halley's Comet, which also is associated with meteor showers.

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.
