: The Bible ... In the Beginning

This epic production draws on the Book of Genesis to depict The Creation through to the story of Abraham and Isaac. In spectacular photography, the film unfolds an evocation of the Garden of Eden; Noah's escape from the Flood in the Ark; the fiasco of the building of the Tower of Babel; and finally the submission of Abraham to God's will. John Huston dominates the film as director, actor and narrator, and the script was prepared by poet Christopher Fry with the aid of many scholars.

... of documentary
A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals. Sun City
This is the place, so it is whispered in puritanical South Africa, where the social taboos so zealously enforced at home can be broken with impunity. In this luxurious casino town, brainchild of multi-millionaire impresario Sol Kerzner , the bans on gambling and sexual intimacy between white and black do not exist. For Sun City lies in Bophuthatswana, one of the home-lands that white South Africa has carved out for its black citizens, and in this notionally independent state the rules of apartheid do not exist. Into this glittering playground pour white South Africans in their hundreds of thousands. They come to play the tables and to enjoy the spectacular and sumptuous shows with their top international artists. They bring money and employment to a poor country, but they also introduce to a simple agricultural people the worst aspects of Western culture - gambling, alcohol and pornography.

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
