: The World About Us

The first of two programmes The Lost Mystery
At the beginning of this century there was no living European who had set eyes on Lhasa, the Holy City of Tibet. Tibet was a forbidden land; one mystery that the 19th century had left to the 20th to explore. This film, mostly in colour, tells the story of the unveiling of Tibet by those few people who, in the first half of this century, crossed the Himalayas into this unknown country.
The films they brought back reveal a country even more unlikely than the dreamers of Shangri-La had ever imagined, a country that is gone forever. In 1950 the Chinese invaded and swept away the old order. Only the memories and the films remain to tell for the first time what Tibet was really like.

: A Lion Is in the Streets

continues the seasTm of feature films portraying the darker side of American power politics. starring
James Cagney , Barbara Hale
Hank Martin is - seemingly - a ' little' man, a backwoods pedlar whose slogan is ' You name it, I've got it '. But Hank is ambitious and dedicated to the poor people he lives and works with. As he rises to power, however, he becomes corrupted by those he fights against. James Cagney gives one of his most dynamic performances in this vivid portrait of local politics seen through the eyes of those who are manipulated by big business and power-hungry politicians.

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.
