In Channel 2's electronic magazine tonight Marc Almond tries out a black magic job ritual. Peter Powell introduces live music from The Cure, General Public support and the new band is Immaculate Fools. On second thoughts though, perhaps he meant 'pentacle'.

: The World About Us

The Dinka Bride
Marial had not seen the girl he had been married to for a bride-price of 80 cattle. At the time of the marriage she was with their people, the Dinka, on the flood plains of the Upper Nile in the South Sudan. Marial was studying engineering in Leeds. The problem was that, since Marial is the oldest son, none of the others in his family could marry till he was married. He had been away for four years so his family married him in his absence. This film tells the story of Marial's brief visit home at Christmas to collect Yar, his bride. It is also the story of the personal conflicts a young man must face when he returns with a western education to a traditional life in the dust of a nomadic cattle-camp.

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.
