: The World About Us

On the Warpath in Arizona Written and narrated by Simon Winchester
One of the strangest disputes in the history of the American West has been going on for over 100 years.
The Navajo and the Hopi tribes are fighting over their right to live on the same piece of land. The Indians blame the US Government for the confusion and the conflict. The dispute is over ancient ancestral rights and more recent treaty agreements. Today 6,500 Navajos are resisting being moved from their tribal lands, so that the Hopis can take them over - by order of the US Government.

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.
