Tonight: Black Australians
Two hundred years ago James Cook , a Royal Naval Lieutenant from Great Britain, set foot in Botany Bay to be greeted with spears and antagonism from the inhabitants of the new Australia - the aborigines.
Today, decimated by murder, rape, brutality, and white man's diseases, the aborigines are far fewer in number than the contented nomadic tribes which originally roamed the island continent they called their own.
Earlier this year, when the Queen witnessed a folksy re-enactment of Cook's first landing jn Botany Bay, the black militants among Australia's aborigines simultaneously performed their own ceremony on the opposite shore. They threw wreaths into the ocean to mark the death of their tribes and to draw attention to the difficulties in the way of their hopes and ambitions to become as Australian as the descendants of the convicts and the settlers from a score of other countries.
Jeremy James and a Man Alive team discovered in Australia concern as well as apathy; a problem for a government unused to racial issues; and a fierce militancy with black overtones already familiar in other parts of the world.

: Coyote Country

A film from Wyoming by D'ARCY HUMPHRIES
In the beautiful but rugged country of the Teton Mountains live a wide variety of animals: elk, moose, bobcats, beavers, raccoons, and many others. One of the most commonly heard sounds is a chorus of coyotes, and this film shows the life of one of them during the course of a year.

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.
