The New Zimbabwe
Earlier this month Rhodesia finally became Zimbabwe. The political tensions and political battles have received massive television and press coverage. But despite this we know little more today of the country's seven million Africans than the white settler who wrote in 1897: '... we know nothing of their past history, who they were or where they came from'.
This film, which includes an interview with Robert Mugabe , looks at the history and culture of Zimbabwe mainly through the eyes of black Africa. It examines the ruined city of Great Zimbabwe itself and asks why the medieval African empire declined so that Europeans, arriving in 1890, found only decay and stagnation. With the reassertion of independence, to what extent will the new Zimbabwe return to traditional lifestyles and attitudes in the aftermath of while rule?

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.
