: Adventure at Sea: Tigris - The Sumerian Voyage of Thor Heyerdahl: Civilsation

The last of four parts.

Tigris, hit by a storm, loses her top mast. She is gradually sinking. Suddenly, she is confronted with the 20th century in the form of the Ogaden War. Buzzed by planes and with ports closed to her, Tigris has nowhere to go. Heyerdahl, after four months and 3,000 miles faces the agonising prospect of being forced to end his voyage.
Commentary spoken by Edward Woodward
"A beautiful and lucid film with remarkable photography." (THE GUARDIAN)
"Poignant and dramatic." (DAILY MAIL)
"I would like to think the burning of 'Tigris' illuminated a dark and troubled part of Africa." (DAILY EXPRESS)

2: Will I Have 100 Friends ? kazumi is blind, yet when she was 4 years old she attended a kindergarten for normal-sighted children near her home in the suburbs of Tokyo. It was the first step in an experiment which has become famous in Japan. Integrated education for the handicapped has existed in some countries like Britain, in a limited way, for many years. Not so in Japan. Kazumi was the test case. There were serious doubts as to whether a blind child could cope with the rough and tumble of normal school life, and it was only through her mother's determination and Kazumi's own personality that the authorities agreed to give it a try. Japanese television followed Kazumi's progress over 18 months from kindergarten to the end of her first year at primary school.

: Discovering English Churches

The last of ten programmes with Donald Sinden Hope and Glory
The 19th century shook the Church of England out of its easy-going mould. The grimy suburbs of the Industrial Revolution were fast becoming strongholds of nonconformism or, worse still, atheism. In these areas, new churches were hurriedly built to stem the rising tide of dissent. This week, donald sinden visits St Mark's, Worsley, near Manchester, and All Souls', Haley Hill , Halifax. Both churches were built in the revived Gothic style which had ousted the classical style and had come to be seen as the only true Christian form of architecture. Both were also the work of Sir George Gilbert Scott , perhaps the most typical architect of the Gothic Revival, and certainly the most prolific.

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.
