: Spirit of Asia

The last of eight programmes narrated by David Attenborough
Land of a Million Buddhas
In Thailand may be found, at one and the same time, the most up-to-date forms of cultural life in south-east Asia, and the most ancient.
It is a land of startling contrasts. Beside hotels and massage parlours stand miniature temples like oriental doll's-houses, the houses of ancient earth-spirits. In monasteries, monks perform ceremonies for cars, marking them with magical symbols to protect them from harm.
More than any country in the world, Thailand is the land of the Buddha image. Produced over 1,300 years, and ranging in size from tiny miniatures to colossal statues, they are so numerous that they far outnumber the human population.

South African Grand Prix
After the first two Grands Prix of 1980 in South America, the Formula One teams move on to South Africa where last year the Ferraris of GILLES VILLENEUVE and JODY SCHECKTER finished first and second. So far this season both drivers have failed to collect a single point and will be determined not to let ALAN JONES , who already leads the Championship in his Saudi-Leyland, get too far ahead in the title chase.

ANDREW BIRKIN'S award-winning trilogy starring with 3: An Awfully Big Adventure
1913: three years have passed since Sylvia's death. George is now a man and Michael 13 years old. For the Llewelyn Davieses , childhood is at an end and illusions are about to be destroyed.
I am sure such excellence would be beyond any other television service in the world. The entire House of Commons should be required to watch it before voting on a motion to compel the Government to grant the BBC funds to maintain its standards ...

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
