: The Tribal Eye

with David Attenborough 4: Woven Gardens
The beautiful glowing rugs made by the nomad women of the Orient have been admired by the outside world for centuries - the finest examples, with their subtle vegetable dyes and vigorous designs, are true works of art which rank with the greatest achievements of tribal imagination.
The Qashqa'i of Iran are one of the last great migrant groups left on earth and Qashqa'i women still make magnificent rugs - portable gardens with which to adorn their black tents.

Moya Lear is an unlikely tycoon. Ex-showgirl, now silver-haired widow, she has been the driving force behind the Learfan. It's a revolutionary aircraft into which the British government has sunk no less than

Presented by Chris Kelly with food specialist and cook Michael Barry and drinks expert Jill Goolden. What's wrong with our licensing laws and who wants to change them? Why is that oldest of all British take-aways - 'yer actual traditional fish 'n' chips' - almost a dish of the past? And what about these new-fangled non-alcoholic drinks - are they better than the real thing?
Just three of the stories in this week's blend of the topical, the delicious and the best value in the world of food and drink.

: Forty Minutes: On the Throne

Ever condemned to be the butt of crude humour, or clad in the garb of awful euphemisms, at last the lavatory comes out of the closet. This documentary film reveals everything you ever wanted to know about them - where and how they are made, who invented them, and how the primitive privy was elevated to an art form. In a pilgrimage through Britain's loveliest lavatories, Lucinda Lambton celebrates the centenary year of the water closet, at long last paying the debt of gratitude to Britain's plumbing pioneers and sanitary magnificoes. Through her eyes the humble symbol of relief to the discomfited becomes an object of beauty and a delight to the eye.

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.
