The Men Who Painted Caves
This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today. In France 12,000 years ago lived a most remarkable group of people. They knew nothing of metal, nor of organised agriculture. Inhabitants of the last Ice Age, they survived by hunting reindeer and mammoth with flint weapons.
Yet their painted and engraved caves, amazingly preserved to this 'day, are man's first great artistic achievement, not to be equalled for thousands of years.
Today scientists are trying to find out more about the men who are most likely our direct ancestors. What sort of life did they lead at this time? What beliefs or religion led them to spend so much energy painting and engraving deep inside, caves? Narrator DUNCAN CARSE
Music DUDLEY SIMPSON

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.
