: Pole to Pole

Michael Palin continues his . journey from the top of the world to the bottom.
Shifting Sands. It might take weeks, it might take months. He might not make it at all. That is the reality that faces
Michael Palin as he prepares to cross Africa's largest country, the Sudan. The Nubian desert to the north is one of the hottest places on earth, and more than a match for Sudan's ramshackle railway rolling stock. To the south, fierce civil war has been raging for years, and the war zone lies smack across 30 degrees east. Khartoum is a vital crossroads at which make-or-break decisions will have to be made. None of the options is easy.

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.
