: * Chronicle: The Catacombs of Sakkara

Sakkara was the burial place of kings and nobles at the dawn of Egyptian history. Two thousand years later it became a place of pilgrimage for devotees of various fantastic cults involving the mummification of countless sacred birds, baboons, and cattle.
Chronicle tells the story of Professor Walter Emery 's search there for Imhotep, the architect of the First Pyramid, who was later deified as God of Medicine. The excavations reached a climax last February with the finding cf the Catacombs of Isis, a vast underground burial place of the mothers of the sacred bulls.

: * Review

The weekly arts magazine presented by James Mossman
A Pagan Place: Edna O'Brien 's new novel is published next week. In her first novel The Country Girls she described the experience of an imaginative girl growing up in the west of Ireland.
In the latest one she returns to these themes - the fears and guilt associated with the Roman Catholic Church, the frustration felt by the inhabitants of a small, isolated community, and the continually changing landscape.
In tonight's film EDNA O'BRIEN reflects on these childhood experiences. Extracts from A Pagan Place read by GLENDA JACKSON
Original Prints: The arts of etching and lithography, in which Rembrandt and Lautree achieved some of their greatest master-pieces, are still very much alive; and with the arrival of new techniques the range of original prints is wider than it has ever been. Review looks at four artists producing work in what some call the ' democratic medium.'

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.
