This year in Tibet, new riots against Chinese rule led to many deaths and the imposition of martial law. Tourists were expelled, but brought back eyewitness accounts and dramatic new pictures.

Exiled in India, the former god-king ruler of Tibet, the Dalai Lama, and 100,000 followers have kept alive their ancient religion. Their government-in-exile patiently awaits a recall to Tibet. But will it ever come? Producer JEFFREY IVERSON

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.
