: The High Chaparral: Pale Warrior

The High Chaparral is the home of a pioneer family in the newly won West; is the prize the settlers must hold against outlaws and Indians; and spells adventure in the wild Arizona territory of 1870.

A young white man held as a slave by the Apaches manages to escape and gratefully takes refuge at the High Chaparral. But Wind is suspicious of the newcomer and tries desperately to prove that he is a dangerous enemy.

: Horizon: A Bulldozer Through Heaven

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.

What happens when an industrial giant invades a primitive community? The very ground is the home of the spirits and ancestors, and when an international mining company suddenly decides to dig it up it is as though a bulldozer were being driven through heaven.
This is what has been happening in New Guinea, an island just emerging from the Stone Age, where even steel axes, bush knives and clothes are only recent innovations. The disturbing effect that these changes are having on the primitive tribesmen is one of the tragedies of the modern world. In some cases where anthropologists working there have made their voices heard the worst effects of the clash of culture have been avoided. Even though, in New Guinea, changes have almost gone too far, what has been learnt there could be a model for social change in every other part of the world.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
