: For the Schools: Living in the Commonwealth: New Zealand: 1: Ao Tea Roa - The Long White Cloud

This is the name given to New Zealand by the Maori explorers who came to the country six or seven hundred years ago.
In today's introductory programme, Bruce Stewart and Inia Te Wiata show something of the great variety and contrast of New Zealand geography. The early Maori settlers would not recognise their country today. The face of the country, its animal life, and vegetation have been transformed in the last hundred years. To this transformation New Zealand owes its prosperous farming industry and its high standard of life.

[Photo caption] Donald Houston as Evan and Jane Baxter as Stella in "September Tide" by Daphne du Maurier

"You never know what will happen with a September tide. They're damned tricky things - " Behind this literal comment of one of the characters in tonight's play lie further reaching implications and complications. To the house of Stella Martyn, set idyllically on the Cornish coast come her newly-married daughter, Cherry, and newly acquired son-in-law, Evan. He, an established artist in his late thirties, with a somewhat cynical view of the world, and Cherry, with the unorthodox upbringing of a tomboy, seem to make an uneasy pair of newly-weds. But it is not so much with their relationship that Stella is concerned as with the discovery of her own feelings for Evan...

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.
