: The World About Us

Chinese Expedition Again
Ascends World's Highest Peak
Introduced by Chris Bonnington
'Our feet weigh tons. Lack of oxygen suffocates us. But Mao Tse-Tung Thought gives us strength. The theory of the proletarian dictatorship guides our course.'
For the Chinese, climbing a mountain is not just a sport; it is a political statement. They made this sensational film themselves to celebrate their triumph in scaling Mt Everest-or Jolmo Lungma as they call it-from Tibet. This is their film and their story, in which they tell of their magnificent adventure, their great courage and their total political dedication.
Produced by the Central Newsreel and Documentary Film Studio, The People's Republic of China
Presented by DAMARIS FLETCHER Series editors


Introduced By: Chris Bonnington

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

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.
