: Sweat of the Sun, Tears of the Moon

The third of an eight-part series on South American society. 'The least reported and most exciting region' of the world. Inca Cola
The Spaniards crushed the Inca empire and their descendants still control most of the wealth and power in Peru. Under the Incas, Peru was a land of plenty. Their descendants live precariously on impoverished small-holdings, or drift to city slums. With a third of the national budget going to the armed forces and another third on international debts, the generals get Exocets and the poor get nothing.
Jack Pizzey investigates the Inca revival and interviews former president Belaunde Terry. Produced and directed by GEOFFREY BARNES

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.
