Expedition Japan: Who was the 'tall, fair-haired and very red-faced European' pulling the float at Kyoto's famous Gion Festival? None other than Simon, sweltering in 90°F, and that's how he was described by five "Blue Peter" viewers who just happened to be in the crowds lining the streets! But that was nothing compared with wading shoulder high into a sea of 50,000 eels, playing the part of a Samurai warrior at the Kyoto Movie Studios and coming face-to-face with the massive 30-stone Sumo wrestlers who make Big Daddy look a mere midget.
And talking of giants, see how Prince has grown during the summer break and catch up with the latest news about all the other four-legged members of the team - Goldie, Jack and Jill and Maggie and Jim.

Bob Fosse 's brilliant and colourful version of Christopher Isher wood's Goodbye to Berlin proved one of the most successful of all musicals and confirmed Liza Min nelli as a star. She plays Sally Bowles , a cabaret singer, working among the decadent cafe society of Berlin in the 1930s. Her love affair with the young Englishman, Brian, develops against a background of street violence and the gradual rise of a fascist society that is to change the world.

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.
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.
