Omm Set!
' Omm Seti means mother of Seti.' This is how Dorothy Eady described herself to the tourists who visited her at the temple of the great Pharaoh Seti the First at Abydos.
At the age of three she fell down stairs and was taken for dead. She recovered, but in a strange new metamorphosis. She became increasingly convinced that she had led an earlier existence as a priestess in ancient Egypt. OMM SET! tells the story of how she became obsessed with the temple in the shadow of which she lived and with its builder King Seti. She died shortly before the film was first shown last May.
Narrated by ERIK DE MAUNY " Film cameraman DAVID SOUTH Producer JULIA CAVE

: Forty Minutes

Gorilla G. Gorilla
N'Pongo is pregnant. Quite how is a mystery. For Jambo - the Jersey Zoo's virile male gorilla - has all this time been penned in an adjoining den. While N'Pongo awaits the arrival of her fifth baby, an eminent zoologist is performing a delicate operation. Jambo lies anaesthetised in the zoo's operating theatre. Small electrical charges are passed through his body to make him ejaculate. Jambo is exceptionally fertile, his semen is in demand from zoos throughout the world.
As man's closest living relative will probably be extinct in the wild in about 20 years time, it is through gorillas in captivity that the species has become a little less endangered. Its line becomes even surer, when N'Pongo finally prepares herself and gives birth, an event never before recorded. The baby is a girl - called Kumi.

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.
