: The Africans

A Triple Heritage
A series of nine programmes written and presented by ALJ A. MAZRUI
2: A Legacy of Lifestyles
Perhaps the most resilient institution in the whole of Africa is the extended family. 'The family is vibrant in its emotions,' says Ali Mazrui , 'compelling in its loyalties.' It's the unifying force in centralised kingdoms and scattered rural communities alike. Its codes of conduct extend to the powerful and to the lowly, to modem and traditional Africa. Polygamy is a recognised practice, acceptable to Islam but anathema to Christian missionaries. In all such families Mazrui sees the desire to have many children. They provide support in old age; they carry on the family name; they ensure immortality. Once many children died young. Now less do, thanks to Western medicine. But as Africa's population soars, Mazrui argues that there are answers other than birth control. Film editor JEFF SHAW

: Up the Chastity Belt

Frankie Howerd
Graham Crowden BillFraser
Having been kidnapped at birth the high-bom Lurkalot has spent his life as a lowly serf. But his natural cunning eventually earns him his rightful place on a throne. Comedian
Frankie Howerd revels in the central role in this bawdy story of the Middle Ages, where the 'wenches' are chased rather than chaste, and the knights are dastardly rather than noble.

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.
