: Horizon

What's So Big About Us? Narrator John Gregson
The Pygmies are one of the oldest and most intelligent people in the world. But they were only ' discovered ' by the West at the beginning of this century when it was found that they were not, after all, half man, half monkey, and to prove it, were brought to England to grace society weddings. Dressed in sailor suits, they nearly died of heat stroke.
In the 30s and 40s documentary film-makers pursued the Pygmies to Africa, only to reinforce already popular misconceptions about them (Some of the films are shown in this programme). Today, now that anthropologists know more about the Pygmies than ever before, they are on the verge of extinction - forced into ' civilisation' no longer by the white man, but the black.
A rare opportunity to see a full-length programme about the world's most extraordinary people.

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.
