: The Tribal Eye

Six films written and presented by David Attenborough 2: Sweat of the Sun
It was gold and the search for El Dorado that lured men to Mexico and South America early in the 16th century. The Aztecs made golden images of their terrifying gods, and fed them a daily sacrifice of human hearts. In Peru, the Inca nobility possessed so much gold that they used it to cover entire walls. And yet the source of the El Dorado legend lay elsewhere and in Colombia a mysterious circular lake conceals a vast treasure in gold and emeralds, the offerings of an Indian tribe to their god - the Sun.

Used-car dealer
Arnold Bristow regains consciousness after a hit-and-run accident with some rather startling revelations. Was it really who he says it was driving the car that hit him? Was what the driver shouted at him of such spiritual significance? Was the incident simply a reminder that he should be going out into the world to put to use a certain - hitherto unused - gift?

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.
