A special preview presented from Peking highlighting the programmes to be shown throughout this week as BBC2 goes Inside

: Joris Ivens' China

' What was lacking in the West was a film that showed the Chinese people in their daily life, at home, working, eating, laughing, thinking', says Joris Ivens, doyen of documentary film-makers. So in 1973, at the personal invitation of Chou en-Lai , he and his associate, Marceline Loridan , went to China to make just such a film.
.The result, after 18 months of shooting and another 18 months of editing, was 12 hours of unique material showing the Chinese as foreigners have never seen them, which was screened last year in cinemas round the world under the title How Yukong Moved the Mountains.
Tonight, JORIS ivens and MARCELINE LORIDAN, in conversation with LUDOVIC KENNEDY , introduce their personal selection from the film. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN

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.
