Six Films of Early Exploration
Introduced from the Royal Geographical Society by Duncan Carse Assault on Everest (1933)
This epic endeavour is brought back to life in the last of the series.
' One of the grandest sights imaginable'-such was an eye-witness s description of the 1933 expedition's first glimpse of Mount Everest. But this was only one of many historic moments the expedition managed to capture on film.
The story starts with the arrival of the pith-helmeted sahibs in Bombay. Later, the expedition came to mountain monasteries. ' the highest pinnacles of enchantment'. Then there was the attempt on the summit. ' On Everest it is an effort to think, almost too much of an effort to live.' Finally, the party was forced down by ice, storm and exhaustion, barely 1,000 feet from the top.

: Newseries Muggeridge: Ancient and Modern

A series of eight autobiographical films in which Malcolm Muggeridge looks back over his life, and over his 50 years as a journalist and broadcaster - featuring extracts from some of his programmes. 1: 1903-1927
Childhood in Croydon. Cambridge University. Teaching in South India ' If Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton, the class war was assuredly lost on the asphalt playgrounds of secondary schools like mine ...'
'Always I've felt in this world something of a stranger in a strange land, but never more so than in my undergraduate days ...3
! When I was 20 the world seemed a place to explore (subsequently,
God knows, my ageing carcass has been hauled about this earth's surface often enough). Even so, that first occasion, waving goodbye to everyone and everything I knew and making off, remains unforget- table. On a cold, misty December day in the year 1924 1, sailed for India.'

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.
