: The Last Place on Earth

A series of four programmes. 1: Getting There
Presented by Michel Pelssel
The tiny Kingdom of Zanskar lies in the highest inhabited valley in the world. Ringed round by the Himalayas, its two kings, 12,000 people and seven monasteries are the guardians of a now vanishing Tibetan way of life that has remained unchanged for more than 1,000 years. Snowed in for three quarters of the year, this frozen desert is a land where nobody starves and violence is virtually unknown. To get there, a BBC film crew walked 400 miles with 50 horses and a ton of stores to keep them for their three-month stay.

: Merchant Ivory Season: Bombay Talkie

continues a season of feature films celebrating the 20-year partnership of Merchant and Ivory. starring Jennifer Kendal Shashi Kapoor
Zia Mohyeddin , Aparna Sen
Visiting India in search of new experiences and sensations, American writer Lucia Lane becomes involved with a Bombay film company and in two disastrous relationships - with Vikram, the married, handsome leading man, and with Hari, an earnest screenwriter and would-be poet. Lucia proves incapable of coping with the emotional entanglements she has initiated and the ' triangle' seems destined to end in tragedy.
The fourth film from the Ivory-Merchant-Jhabvala team, Bombay Talkie provides a fascinating glimpse of the Bombay film industry and includes a wonderful pastiche of a Busby Berkeley-like Bombay extravaganza.
Screenplay by RUTH PRAWER JHABVALA and JAMES IVORY
Produced by ISMAIL MERCHANT Directed by JAMES IVORY

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.
