: Everyman

The Broken Covenant
This year Australia has been much in the news, but surprisingly little has been heard about the plight of the ' other Australians ', the Aborigines. Last week's Everyman reported on tribal Aborigines in the outback, on their struggle to retain their own way of life. But what happens to Aborigines caught up in the cities? This film explores the Aborigine experience of Sydney, and the response of one remarkable white priest, Fr Ted Kennedy , who believes it is time white ' civilisation' stopped telling ' primitive ' tribes how to live their lives.
1 Aborigines say " when white people came we had the land and they had the Bible. Now we've got the Bible and they've got the land." I feel we're the ones who need evangelising - by 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.
