: The Triumph of the West

A view of world history in 13 parts by JOHN ROBERTS 6: The Explorers
The Chinese and the Arabs were good sailors but it was the Europeans who embarked on the great voyages of exploration which were to lead, for a time, to the outright, if temporary, military and economic domination of the globe.
John Roberts describes how
Europe mastered the sea in the age of Henry the Navigator,
Magellan, Vasco da Gama and Columbus. What impact did they have on the people and exotic cultures they encountered? And what difference did it all make to Europe and to the way Europeans thought of themselves, to the mental map of mankind? 'It is unthinkable now, but for a time it was still possible to dream the dream of a world civilisation defined entirely in terms of the civilisation of the West.'

: The Haunted Heroes

A World About Us special
This documentary won the RAI Prize at last month's Prix Italia
More than two-and-a-half million Americans served in Vietnam. They risked their lives and then returned to a country that rejected them. Bitter and angry, some have survived by running away from society and living in the wilderness. Today hundreds of these veterans are still hiding in remote forests and mountains of North America. For them Vietnam is an unfinished business. They fear the violence in themselves.
In any other war Steve,
Bruce, Jake and Fred would have been heroes. This documentary shows them living in self-imposed exile, outcasts in their own country. Producer TONY SALMON

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
