: Spirit of Asia

A series of eight films narrated by David Attenborough 4: The Story of Rama
Among the cultural riches bestowed by India on the lands of South-East Asia, one particular work of art stands out ahead of all others. ' Ramayana ', an ancient story of heroism and villainy, was able to take so firm a hold on the imagination of the people, that it has maintained a universal popularity for 2,000 years.
In India, the epic tale has survived in its entirety, and every year during the festival of Dussehra it is played out, scene by scene, from start to finish. In the holy city of Benares it uses the world's largest theatre - the fortress home of the Maharajah-and a series of stages distributed across the landscape. Giant effigies of the Demon King and his family are made from bamboo and paper. To mark the climax of the story, they are set alight, and disappear amid the sparks of firecrackers and a great cloud of smoke.

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.
