: Nine Lives

A season of film biographies of artists and musicians. in Songs of a Sourdough
Verses from the Gold Rush
' A bunch of the boys were whooping it up in the Malamute saloon.'
The characters and the settings of the Last Great Gold Rush. In 1898 the discovery of gold drew to the Klondike adventurers and prospectors from all over the world. After them came a little Scottish bank clerk, Robert Service, who turned the tales of the High North into lively, often humorous verse. And he sold over a million copies of his first poems: Songs of a Sourdough. This programme, filmed on location in the Yukon, tells the story of the Gold Rush through the eyes of Robert Service, with dramatised scenes of his life, with verse and with the astonishing still photographs taken on the Arctic trails and in the riotous gold towns by the early photographers.

John Norman, ex-London policeman, is now a CID Inspector in Tsim Sha Tsui - Hong Kong's Soho - where the line between the straight and the bent is more than a little curved. As Norman is drawn into robbery, kidnap and murder, he shows what it is to be on the Hong Kong beat, where British policemen bow before the God Kwandai, and row in a Dragon Boat Race against the Triads.

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.
