The Hang-glider Man
For centuries men dreamed of flying like birds - now they can, and do, and sometimes kill themselves in the process. Hang-gliding is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world and one which feeds on some of man's oldest dreams.
Mike Harker is one of the professionals for whom hang-gliding has become a way of life. In this very personal film he speaks of its excitements, its dangers and his passion for it. We see him making breath-taking descents from Mount Fuji in Japan, from mountains in Italy and from cliff-tops in Hawaii.
Presented by SIMON NORMANTON Series editors

: Seven Artists

The last in a series of seven films about artists at work today. Edward Ruscha
(Ed-werd Rew-shay)
'Hollywood's not just a place. Hollywood is a verb. You can "Hollywood" something. You can "Hollywood" anything.'
ED RUSCHA's art materials have included egg white, spinach, gun-powder, blackberry juice, pastels and oils.
On a clear day he can see the huge Hollywood sign from his city studio. But most days are smoggy; and he certainly can't see the sign from his rocky retreat 5,000 feet up in the clear air of the Californian desert.
The film follows him to and fro, and watches him labour on a tough desert project which calls for help from his friends.

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.
