: The Tribal Eye

A series of seven films in which David Attenborough relates masterpieces of the world's tribal art to the people and places that produced them.
6: Man Blong Custom
Among the islands of the South West Pacific, missionary influence has greatly changed the lives of people who were once head-hunters and cannibals.
But even today there exist remote tribal villages which still retain their own traditions and beliefs. The bush people of Malekula, in the New Hebrides, still use the skulls of the dead to make memorial sculptures, which they entertain with spirit-puppets in their spectacular funeral ceremonies. In the Solomons, a powerful movement has arisen, dedicated to the rejection of Christianity and the revival of tribal custom. And, once again, the black war canoe may be seen with, just above the water, the face of a guardian spirit.

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.

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.
