: Whicker's World

Living with Waltzing Matilda Alan Whicker introduces the fourth of ten films in Australia's bicentennial year. Northern Queensland seems an abode of the blessed. And yet each year the crocodile notches up its terrible toll, despite the signs that warn of the presence of this unlovely amphibian ... unloved by all, except Mike Pople , who left Bristol to become a ranger for the Queensland Wildlife Service.
Among other examples of Pommie exotica who flourish in this balmy backwater are Bill Moull from Dagenham who sells prawns to the Japanese, Pat Robertson from London who sells koalas to the Japanese,
Geoff and Edie Taylor from Coalville in Leicestershire, who are making a brave attempt to convert
Australians to the garden gnome, and Eddie Farrell from Manchester, who lives in hope of finding gold - but who, to date, has not found enought to fill a gold tooth. Assistant producer MO BOWYER Film cameraman RAY HENMAN

: Everyman

Let There Be Light
In the Middle Ages, people believed that light was the very embodiment of God, and they celebrated his presence with the breathtaking splendour of their stained-glass windows. Very little is known about the men who made them. Yet they are still a source of inspiration to modern craftsmen, like those working on the huge unfinished cathedral of St John the Divine in New York. For the first time, a film camera has recorded for Everyman the magical beauty of the great rose windows at Chartres
Cathedral from close at hand. And the great composer, Olivier Messiaen , at the organ of the Trinite church in Paris, talks of the special place light and stained glass have in his faith and his music.

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.

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