: B.Traven: A Mystery Solved

The Story of a Search
Was this B. Traven , one of the most mysterious figures of the 20th century? He wrote The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and a dozen other fine books which have sold in millions around the world, but no publisher, no agent, and no fellow author ever met him - he has remained the Marie Celeste of literature, a name with no identity. Nobody knew in what language he wrote. Nobody knew in what country he had been born. Nobody knew if he was one man or several. It was even said that those who sought him were struck down and destroyed.
Traven boasted that his real name was a secret no one would ever discover. Until now, no one has.
Robert Robinson has written this film about the trail he and a BBC team followed from Hollywood to the heart of Germany, from Mexico City to Limehouse to trace the life of this mystery man -for the first time the secrets of B. Traven are discovered.

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.

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