: Around the World In 80 Days

A seven-part documentary entertainment, in which actor and writer
Michael Palin attempts to emulate the achievement and adventures of the late Phileas Fogg.
3:Ancient Mariners
In a desperate attempt to catch up, Michael drives right across Arabia in 40 hours, only to find in Dubai his toughest challenge.
He and Passepartout propose to sail to Bombay on a dhow - a small, primitive, sail-assisted vessel without radio, navigation aids, life belts or electricity, with a crew of Gujarati mariners who speak hardly a word of English. There's no accommodation either, and the circumnavigators must sleep on sacks of cargo on the deck. Captain Hassan assures Michael the voyage will take six days, but that's before the engine fails in the Strait of Hormuz - a main theatre of conflict in the Iran-Iraq war. Michael and Passepartout can only look on helplessly as the mines drift by ... Film cameraman NIGEL MEAKIN Film recordist RON BROWN Film editor DAVID THOMAS Producer CLEM VALLANCE

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.
