The Lost Waters of the NUe
In the Southern Sudan the White Nile pours into a bog that's as big as the whole of Ireland, and half of it simply disappears.
Now, the biggest engineering project in Africa, the Jonglei Canal, proposed by Britons in 1903, is being built by a French company with Pakistani engineers riding a huge German excavator.
This international activity centres on the territory of half a million Dinka, who are well adjusted to a harsh environment, breed cattle for their bovine beauty, have little interest in agriculture, and were recently at war with the Arab North. Will the new canal destroy their unique way of life? Or will it lead to reconciliation between communities with different cultures? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN

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.
