: Surrender to Everest

Narrated by Paul Scofield
It had the promise of a Himalayan Grand Slam. Twenty-four climbers from 12 nations, aiming for the summit of the world by the two most difficult routes. The attempt was finally called off on 22 May. By that time seven climbers had walked out, 11 had been sent home with severe illness, and one - Major Harsh Bahuguna of India - was dead.
Five of the original BBC team of eight stayed with the climb until the last day, and were filming with sync-sound at the highest altitudes ever achieved.
This is an incredible record of human decline which begins as the star climbers of Europe and America leave for Everest at the head of an army of 900 porters, and which ends with the bitter accusations of the final day. This is not just a mountain story, it is
Everest - the route to a bitterly exhausting failure: 8.10 a contemporary human statement - an international disaster in microcosm.

: The Truly Amazing Phenomenon

You can'dismiss the Tenby Gang Show as just another local amateur entertainment. It's much more than that, as actor Kenneth Griffith agreed when he revisited the Pembrokeshire seaside town where he was born. This highly professional show helps to band together the entire community.

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

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.
