: The Last Place on Earth

The last of four programmes Nodrup's Monastery
Presented by Michel Peissel
Karsha, in the Kingdom of Zanskar, is one of the last of the great Tibetan monasteries. The monks live by rules laid down by their founder, the Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago. Like medieval Europe, nearly a quarter of Zanskar's population are monks. They are the second sons of an agricultural community that is rich enough to keep them in the monasteries, but too poor to allow them to stay at home, marry, and multiply. The monasteries may seem an economic luxury, but this is Zanskar's equivalent of Cape Canaveral, and the monks are engaged in the psychic equivalent of a moonshot.

BBC2's Dance Month 1980, ends with a performance by one of the greatest Russian companies, the Kirov from Leningrad.
Raymonda, choreographed by MARIUS PETIPA to music by ALEXANDER GLAZUNOV , is a magnificent example of the classical ballet of the 19th century, danced tonight in the beautiful theatre that saw its first performance in 1898. Set in medieval Provence it tells the story of the wooing of Raymonda by the Crusader knight, Jean de Brienne , and his evil rival the Saracen Abderahman.

: The Money Programme

A special edition on China
' The people of China are working with one heart and one voice under the leadership of Chairman Hua to achieve the four modernisations of our country.'
(A CHINESE FACTORY WORKER)
By the year 2,000, Chinese leaders intend that agriculture, industry, science and defence will be modernised so that China is an industrial nation. The average income per head will increase from
150 dollars a year to 1,000 dollars in 20 years. But what problems will such rapid modernisation bring? How much will they have to compromise Chinese communism and accept capitalist ways?
Paul Barry has visited Chinese factories and talked with factory managers and workers, and with Vice-Premier Kang Shi'en to assess China's new Great Leap Forward.

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.
