: The World About Us

Roraima - the Lost World
Roraima has always been a legend. It's a fabled mountain plateau guarded by jungle and swamp deep in the interior of Guyana, perhaps near the fabled Eldorado itself. It's believed to be a source of diamonds and gold, but fear of evil spirits prevented the Indians venturing near it. It's the mountain Conan Doyle envisaged in 1912 when he wrote The Lost World - a haunt of the monsters of prehistory. And since the dawn of time man has striven to find and climb the great mountain.
It rises more than 9,000 ft above sea level. It's the ' Mother of All Waters' - the birthplace of the Amazon, the Orinoco and Esquito rivers. Its forbidding eroded rock summit, its base surrounded by slime forests merging into the great rain forests teeming with snakes, scorpions and poisonous spiders, and its winds and mists have always guarded its secrets. But on 12 November 1973 the face of Roraima was conquered. This film is the story of the men who achieved 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.

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.
