: The World About Us

Kathmandu: A Threatened Beauty And the wildest dreams of Kew are the facts of Khatmandu.
Kathmandu, capital of the Kingdom of Nepal, was for centuries the great trading city between India and Tibet. Yesterday a distant Shangri-La at the foothills of the Himalayas, it's now a one-hour flight from Delhi.
The Kathmandu Valley has a culture and a style of architecture to be found nowhere else in the world. Today there are changed priorities, and a real danger that this unique architecture will disappear forever. The Nepalese Government, with the help of UNESCO, are making an eloquent plea for its protection and preservation. Like Venice, they say, the Valley of Kathmandu is part of the world's cultural heritage and the world must protect it.
But should other nations help, if the Nepalese themselves are losing interest? And how can hell be given without creating a dependency requiring a constant. crutch to sustain it?

continues the season of films from the writings of RAYMOND CHANDLER starring
Fred MacMurray
Barbara Stanwyck

This thriller represents Chandler's first direct work as a screenwriter in his adaptation of James M. Cain 's cynical novel about human corruptibility.

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.
