'Beneath us we saw more elephants than any human being haa ever seen before ... 10,000 elephants in two hours . . . then a 30-mile border of pink flamingoes round a lake of jade . . . new zebra swept by beneath us by the thousand .. ' So explorer and pioneer photographer Martin John son described the incredible wealth of wildlife that existed in Africa in the 1930s; wildlife which he was now filming from the air for the first time.
With his wife, Osa, Martin Johnson flew over 60,000 miles in their two primitive bi-planes: survived tropical rainstorms, crash-landings and innumerable narrow escapes and brought back a unique picture of now-vanished wildlife, and an enduring story of high adventure.

: The Light of Experience

In 1975, Reine Schiller went to Vietnam as a freelance journalist and independent woman. Her quest for adventure ended in a dramatic exodus from Saigon, a nightmarish boat journey and the unexpected acquisition of Hung, a 6-year-old orphan who adopted her as his 'maman'. Reine des. cribes how she taught him to become a civilised young Englishman and how he taught her to become a devoted mother. '... there is a bond between us that neither time nor distance can break. I did not bring my son into the world but I am thankful that the world gave him to me. For the gift of motherhood is something my life would have been much poorer without.'

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.
