: Spirit of Asia

Narrated by David Attenborough
A series of eight films in which DAVID ATTENBOROUGH goes to India and south-east Asia, to the countries where the world's most ancient religions and art-forms have miraculously survived into the 20th century, and where today they persist with strength and vitality, an indispensable part of daily life.
2:The Morning of the World
Bali is a small volcanic island of extraordinary natural beauty lying due south of Borneo and a little to the east of Java.
When, in the 16th century, its neighbours converted to Islam, Bali persisted with its own faith-a happy blend of Hinduism and spirit worship - and today it enjoys a life of pageantry and festive splendour unequalled anywhere in the world.
...an exotic celebration. (EVENING NEWS) ... altogether a joy to watch, a wonderful evocation ... (THE DAILY TELEGRAPH) Film editors STEPHEN EVANS , DAVE KING

: Grand Prix

featuring motor racing's Formula One World Championship
The Marlboro British Grand Prix from Silverstone
Highlights of the 1981 season's ninth championship race on the world's fastest Grand Prix circuit -the 2.9-mile track deep in the Northamptonshire countryside. With average practice speeds approaching 150 mph, Clay Regaz zoni's 1979 lap record now looks almost pedestrian and certain to be bettered today -but by whom? Will thousands of British motor-sport fans witness another home victory here just four years after James Hunt 's triumph in 1977? After third and second places in Spain and France, Ulsterman JOHN WATSON in his McLaren is running into peak form but CARLOS REUTE -MANN still heads the drivers' table with 37 points from Brazilian NELSON PIQUET 11 behind and ALAN JONES in third place with 24.

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.
