: The World About Us: Voyage of the Hokule'a

Narrated by William Franklyn
In 1976, 15 men set sail out of Hawaii, bound for Tahiti. Crowded on to a twin-hulled Polynesian canoe, they were determined to prove that their ancestors, over 2,000 years before, could have sailed the same immense distances with no navigational aids other than an uncanny knowledge of stars and seas. However, the greatest problems the venture faced were not those of the vast ocean but of human conflict - even before the voyage started.
Presented by Tristan Allsop.

: Spirit of Place: Lawrence Durrell's Egypt

"After 30 years, I return to Egypt to see again places which, either from a literary or a personal point of view, meant something to me or marked me or moved me, and to see what traces, if any, remain of that extravagantly coloured world I painted in 'The Alexandria Quartet'."
In a sequel to the Greek "Spirit of Place", Peter Adam takes Lawrence Durrell back to the setting of his four famous novels.
Their journey starts in Alexandria and follows the Nile to Aswan and Abu Simbel. Durrell revisits Wadi Natrun, Fayum, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings. He talks about his beliefs, his craft and his experiences as a writer: and evokes Egypt's two landscapes - the desert and the great river.

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.
