: Johnny Morris in Mexico: 6: Mexico City and the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco

Six films of his jaunt in the sun last August.

It's Sunday, the day when you enjoy yourself... and the Mexicans are real professionals when it comes to enjoying themselves...
from the South and West

In the fourteenth century the Aztecs settled on two mud-banks in the centre of a huge mountain lake. They practised land reclamation by floating rafts of wattles, mud, and reeds, the roots of which anchored the rafts to the lake-bed. Over the centuries the whole area took root, and it is now Mexico City.
All that remains of the lake is a group of 'canals' on which grows a beautiful green leafy moss. They are called the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco and, together with Chapultepec Park in the centre of the city, they are among the Mexicans' favourite Sunday resorts.

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.
