: The World About Us

Bushman of the Kalahari
'Originally I was an outsider and then I became more and more involved with the Bushmen 'tit today they say, flatteringly, " You're almost half a Bushman ".'
The story of Dr Hans-Joachim Heinz and the Bushmen of Bere Narrated by JIM DOUGLAS HENRY
DR HEINZ made his first expedition into the Kalahari Desert. 16 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 deep beneath 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 Wily. 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: though how much longer the old will last, not even half Bushman Heinz can say.

: Louis Malle's A Human Condition

The film essay is sometimes thought to be a lost cause, or at least something of a rarity. Here is a distinguished one by LOUIS
MALLE, who can fairly be described as a ' doyen' of the art. A Human Condition is on a smaller scale than his celebrated reports on India, and on a subject much closer to home - the Renault automobile factory in Paris, where Malle lives. This is a short film with no overt message, no story, no plot line, but the implication that mass production is not human. The viewer is left to draw his own conclusions, based on what Louis Malle 's camera brings him. The film was made as Malle's response to unrest at the Renault factory. But it is not an account of industrial strife, or bargaining -instead, the eminent French director reflects the conditions and life of the workers in the car factory. ' A human condition ...

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.
