Hussein - The Survivor King
They put acid in his nose drops, poisoned his food, machine-gunned his car. Assassins have been trying to kill Hussein ever since he became King of Jordan at 17. He has survived war with Israel and fought a civil war with Palestinians. At 42, he is one of the best known but most isolated leaders in the Middle East. Now, once again, he is one of the central figures in the moves towards a peace settlement.
In this profile Jack Pizzey talks to Hussein at his palace in Amman. The King is also shown in the desert with his Bedouin tribes, on army manoeuvres, and at his summer palace on the Gulf of Aqaba.

: Rugby Special

Cardiff v The All Blacks
' Who beat the All Blacks? ' Cardiff did in 1953-a fact that BLEDDYN WILLIAMS and his team will never forget.
On this, the second match of their tour, the New Zealanders will very quickly be reminded of the fervour and quality of Welsh rugby when they play a Cardiff side that, in domestic competition this year, has shown its ability to win and win well. Englishman BARRY NELMES will do his utmost to lead the 1978 side into the Welsh song book as his predecessor did 25 years ago.

: The World About Us: Ileksen

Two weeks ago on The World About Us 'Yumi Yet' showed how Papua New Guinea leapt in one bound from an almost stone-age tribal culture to political independence and a seat at the UN. Now Ileksen takes the story one stage further: only two years after independence Papua New Guinea held its first General Election to elect a British-style parliamentary Government.
Although some candidates still wear tribal paint and feathers, they soon show they have nothing to learn about the hustings - they took to the platform and the loudhailer with the skill of old campaigners and gave us a lesson in well-mannered 'Ileksen-eering.'

: A Sense of Loss Evelyn Waugh

Ronald Harwood tells the story of the circumstances and events which inspired Decline and Fall, Brideshead Revisited and The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold and, through the history of these books, draws a picture of one of the most accomplished English writers of the 20th century.
Underneath the comic surface of Evelyn Waugh 's writing there is a great sense of sadness at the ridiculous and pointless ways in which human life is spent and wasted. Beneath his formidable public personality and outspoken behaviour, he concealed enormous sensitivity, melancholy and nostalgia for lost happiness and beauty.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
