: Horizon: The Fierce People

In a small region of South America there are 125 villages of the Yanomamo Indians. They are all at war with each other. Yet although a third of all adult males die in these wars and many of the children are killed by their parents at birth, this culture has survived for a thousand years.
Violence is a way of life yet they have means of containing it. Their technology is Stone Age yet their political abilities would do credit to a modern statesman.
For the last 10 years a team has been studying the tribe. They have looked at the way in which warfare has affected its evolution, and in doing so have gained some insight into our development.
Tonight's Horizon traces the events as one village tries to form an alliance with an old enemy. Feelings ran high and the feast erupted into violence - but then the Yanomamo have a way of dealing with it.

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.
