: The World About Us

Kenworthy's Kenya
Narrated by DEREK JONES
Jonathan Kenworthy is a young English sculptor who spends four months of the year on safari in the Kenyan savannahs and deserts. On each visit he gathers impressions of Africa and sketches incidents of animal and human behaviour to provide a bank of ideas for his sculptures.
This film shows how the sculptures develop out of the sketches through successive stages of plasticine and wax until the final casting of molten metal. The bronzes that KENWORTHY creates in this way have a world-wide reputation for dramatically combining the very essence of the African environment with the forms of animals and tribesmen.

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
