: Spirit of Asia

A series of eight programmes narrated by David Attenborough 7: God-Kings of Angkor
A thousand years ago in the dense jungles of northwest Cambodia, successive God-Kings strove to outdo their predecessors by building ever finer and more spectacular temples. So great was their achievement that there is today nowhere in the world which can compare with Angkor for the number, size and perfection of its monuments.
Most magnificent of all is Angkor Wat, the largest religious building in the world, a gigantic temple-mountain built to the glory of the god Vishnu and his incarnation,
God-King Suryavarman II. On its walls are carvings of apsaras , the divine nymphs of paradise, who had their earthly counterparts in the young girls who served the king as palace dancers and concubines.
Today, after ten years of war and suffering in Cambodia, the temples miraculously have survived, almost undamaged, and the dancers of the Royal Palace are beginning a performance which, under Pol Pot, would have meant death.

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.
