: The Tribal Eye

Seven award-winning films in which David Attenborough relates the masterpieces of tribal art to the people and places that produced them.
1: Behind the Mask
The remote Dogon country in central Mali still retains much of the mystery and magic of ancient Africa. It is one of the last places left on earth where it is possible to see not only how tribal carvings are made, but why they are made and what part they play in ritual life. Tonight's film sets out to cross the barrier that so often conceals the meaning of tribal art from the European eye.
Attenborough's programmes are a luscious feast for the eye ... a superior series. (SUNDAY TIMES) The ' Civilisation of the jungle.
A splendid production introducing a series of exceptional merit.
Continuously fascinating. (OBSERVER) Film cameraman JOHN HOOPER Film editor PAM BOSWORTH
Book (same title), £7.00, to be published on 14 October

A fortnightly look at the big screen at home and abroad: news, views and interviews presented by Gavin Millar
This week's edition features the work of the outstanding American director Robert Altman, whose films include "M*A*S*H", "Nashville" and, most recently, "Buffalo Bill and the Indians".
"We're in a position in our culture right now, where most of the things we learn are from films and television. And maybe I'm trying to say, 'Wait a minute, that's not necessarily true, there's another side to it...'" (Robert Altman)

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.
