: EUROPA

A look at the world through
European eyes
*
FREE FOR ALL
In the past few weeks the world has applauded the brave and united stand that the Czechs have made in the face of Soviet occupation. The Slovaks have not enjoyed so much popular recognition and, indeed, for decades they have felt themselves to be the 'poor relations.' But this week they hope to gain cultural and political autonomy in a federal system of government. Elsewhere ethnic minorities get a rougher deal. The Kurds have for eight years fought a desperate battle to gain equality in Arab dominated Iraq. Tonight Europa looks at these two very different countries and examines their prospects.
Introduced this week by Olivier Todd
Producer. FRANK SMITH.

: OUT IN ARIZONA WHERE THE BAD MEN ARE....

They are still out in Arizona, but now it's the film companies who take them there—together with the equipment, the props, the people, and the horses to turn out a fifty-minute television Western in five days. But even with air-conditioned dressing rooms, gallons of iced drinks and the comfort of a luxury hotel at night, life in the desert with the thermometer at around 115 degrees is not so easy -the rattlesnakes and the poisonous cacti have scant respect for star actors.
The High Chaparral series, which returns to BBC-2 next week, is filmed almost entirely on location in and around Tucson Arizona. For a few hectic days last summer a BBC crew joined the production unit to film it in action and to talk to some of the people involved.

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.
