The Case of the Ancient Astronauts
Are we descendants of space men? Was civilisation created by intelligent beings who landed on Earth in prehistoric times? The Swiss author Erich von Daniken believes he can prove it was.
His evidence includes what look like astronauts' airfields in Peru, ancient carvings depicting space men in Mexico, Ecuador and Africa, and clues that point to extra-terrestrial intervention in the building of the Egyptian pyramids, the statues of Easter Island and the massive stone monuments in South America. His theories are scorned by scientists and archaeologists, yet they have undoubtedly caught the popular imagination. He has sold 40 million books on the subject. There must be many people who have a sneaking suspicion that he could just be right. But how good is his evidence? How does it compare with the fascinating alternative explanations of these mysteries of the ancient world? Has VON DANIKEN proved his extraordinary case that creatures from other worlds have walked on Earth?

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

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.
