: Will to Win

Presented by Harold Williamson
Evelyn Glennie , along with 600 other students at the Royal Acadamy of Music, London, is studying to become a musician. She has had to learn to 'hear' and play in a special way - because she has been profoundly deaf since the age of 12. Music is Evelyn's life whether it is developing her talent in percussion and piano, introducing deaf children to the joys of making music, or playing before a Royal audience in a performance which prompted Sir Georg Solti to predict an exciting future for her.
'All I want is to be heard, to be judged on my ability like any other musician.' Film editor GRAHAM DEAN
Producer TERENCE O'REILLY

The Mission
This long-awaited epic film from director Roland Joffe and producer David Puttnam , set in 18th-century Paraguay, tells a story of the persecution and cultural exploitation of the Indians by the invading Spaniards.
Its stars are Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons but the most crucial piece of casting for Joffe was to find a group of Indians to play the massacred Guarani tribe. After months of searching through often unexplored tracts of South America he came upon the Waunana people in the heart of the Colombian rain forests. At first apprehensive, they finally agreed to take part in this totally alien and extraordinary venture.
Omnibus looks at the making of The Mission through the eyes of the Waunana Indians, whose own contemporary problems have disturbing parallels with the tragic history of the people they play, for the issues of The Mission still resonate throughout Latin America today. Film editors

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
