Many Europeans once called Africa ' the Dark Continent'. Few dared to venture there and probe its mysteries.

They trace the arrival of the white explorers, missionaries and slave traders, and look at their influence in Africa since they first went there just a few hundred years ago.

The Truth About Red Cloud,
General Custer. Butch Cassidy ... and John Wayne
' Yessir ... if you've seen it on those Western movies, it first happened on the Powder.'
The American West - nowhere else in the world has been so saturated in fiction. But, to producer Tim Slessor , who once lived there, the reality is much more dramatic than the myth.
This film tells the story of just one small area: the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. Here, in its original edition, happened almost everything that has gone to make the West the legend that it has become. This was the final strong-hold of the Sioux. Later came English and Scots m'luds, who aimed to make their fortunes as cattle-barons. Later still came the Wild Bunch - led by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. But,as this film discloses, they were noTkilled in an Andean shoot-out. Yessir ... it first happened on the Powder.

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.
