: The World About Us: Volcano

by Haroun Tazieff.
A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it.

Haroun Tazieff, a leading vulcanologist, risked injury and death to make this spectacular and justly celebrated film. Every notable recent volcanic eruption has been covered-frequently from the brink of the crater.
For nine years Tazieff reconnoitered and studied the Italian volcano Stromboli, and the film he brought back was his unique reward. He says: "We saw worlds being created and destroyed at the same time... one could stand at a distance of six yards from the lava flow. At four yards one's eyebrows begin to scorch which does not smell very nice. Another step and radiant heat would produce serious burns."
When Volcano was first shown Maurice Wiggin of the Sunday Times said: "This was an experience of 'the rages of the earth' which subsumed all categories-art, education, documentary, travelogue."

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.
