: 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.
5: Woven Gardens
The beautiful glowing rugs made by the nomad women of the Orient have been admired by the outside world for centuries - the finest examples, with their subtle vegetable dyes and vigorous designs, are true works of art which rank with the greatest achievements of tribal imagination.
The Qashqa'i of Iran are one of the last great migrant groups left on earth and Qashqa'i women still make magnificent rugs - portable gardens with which to adorn their black tents.

The Illustrators
The work of Mick Brownfield and Allan Manham.
Every day of our lives, without entering an art gallery, we are subjected to a barrage of images created by hundreds of contemporary artists. Yet they themselves remain anonymous. They are the illustrators who draw and paint for advertisement hoardings, for magazines, newspapers, book jackets, record covers. Arena filmed two British illustrators working on their current projects. The Swish of the Curtain
Artist Chris Orr probes the dreadful truth behind the net curtains of suburbia.

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.
