: The Spirit of Carnival

Narrated by Elizabeth Bell
The twin carnivals of Rio and Trinidad are two of the most spectacular and gloriously pagan festivajs ever to be celebrated in modern times. The Portuguese took the ' entrudo', a ritual last fling before Lent, to Brazil. The French took Mardi Gras to Trinidad. The African slaves in both countries gave it the spirit to survive for more than 300 years. Today carnival lives on. Producer BOB SAUNDERS

: Chronicle

Search for a Century
Little is known of the earliest English settlements in America. But archaeologist Ivor Noel Hume , exploring an 18th-century tobacco plantation in Virginia, accidentally discovered a site that seemed to date from a century earlier.
Was this the short-lived settlement of Wolstenholme? Were the mutilated skeletons victims of the great Indian attack of 1622? This film is a record of Hume's search for a cenfury and reveals how he pieces together his archaeological evidence to produce an astonishingly vivid picture of the way the first English colonists lived, with all the trappings of European civilisation transplanted into a hostile environment.
Written and directed by ivor NOËL HUME Presented for BBCtv by ANTONIA BENEDEK Series editor BRUCE NORMAN

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.
