Heaven on Earth? The Kibbutz Ideal
'We are a tribe', claims a kibbutz veteran with pride. But if so, it is a most astonishing tribe. It has no poverty, no snobbery, no class, no crime, no unemployment and no homelessness.
Kibbutz is a society of one for all and all for one. It ploughs all its profits back into social security and the common kitty.
But in the past year or two the kibbutz movement has been plunged into crisis: partly economic, and partly the result of a widespread loss of confidence from within. The tribe has 128,000 members and has been going for nearly 80 years. Forty years ago it was vital to the setting up of the state of Israel. But in the tensions of today, can it survive?

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.
