: JOHNNY MORRIS

North from Lion City
Starting at Singapore, he travels by road and rail through Malaya to Northern Thailand
5: Bangkok-klongs, monks, and a story-book palace
'The temple of the Emerald Buddha.... is such a delightful demonstration of sheer happiness ... an ingenious, hilarious, architectural giggle.'
Of Bangkok's 21-million population, ninety-four per cent are Buddhist and in this film Johnny visits Wat Bencha-the marble monastery-where he sees the monks at work and at prayer. He also visits the grounds of the Grand Palace and the fabulous Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The film ends with a tour of the Klongs. They form a maze of waterways through the city and the surrounding countryside, and the people live in houses that are open at the water's edge. Here too is the Floating Market where sampans are piled high with every kind of fruit and vegetable and where, from a boat, it is possible to buy anything from candles to a cup of coffee or a joint of meat.
Produced by BRIAN PATTEN from the South and West

: AND ANOTHER THING....

with Robert Erskine

: British Films of the Fifties: It Started in Paradise

Feature films from a decade of movie-making.

Dress design and the world of high fashion have a glamour that rouses a primitive excitement in almost all women. For old Madame Alice in her nearly-deserted salon the great days had passed long before 1938 when this story begins. But for Martha Watkins the great days must be now, and she sees opportunity within her grasp ...

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.
