: The World About Us

Bushman of the Kalahari
The story of Dr Hans-Joachim Heinz and the Bushmen of Bere Narrated by JIM DOUGLAS HENRY
' Originally I was an outsider and then I became more and more involved with the Bushmen till today they say, flatteringly, " You're almost half a Bushman." -
Dr Heinz made his first expedition into the Kalahari Desert 15 years ago, and was amazed and fascinated by the groups of little golden-brown hunters he found there. They still lived by digging roots from under the sand and hunting game with their poison arrows.
But Heinz decided that to survive they must adapt to modern ways - and set about leading the change himself. Now the Bushmen have cattle and goats, a borehole - and a school, run by New Zealander LIZ WILEY. Often she is the only white person for over 100 miles of desert. Today in Bere the new cattle drink at the borehole - and the little hunters still glide across the desert.
Courtship, a special programme for the spring season: Monday, 9.25 pm

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
