: Lizzie - An Amazon Adventure

In 1896 a young housewife from Hackney made a remarkable journey into the Amazon jungle. Lizzie Hessel survived appalling conditions on her way to the remote
Bolivian location where her husband was to manage a rubber estate. The adventure-packed 4,000-mile voyage took 13 months and Lizzie became the first European woman to travel so far up the Amazon. Maria Aitken follows in her footsteps and finds the journey no less challenging, as she treks through some of the wildest country on earth to the spot where Lizzie lived.

Peter France presents his pick of the past year's history stories and reveals their often surprising sources.
A chance conversation led to the unearthing of a First World War story which is missing from all the textbooks: the exploits of the women who opposed the war, held an international gathering at the height of hostilities, and mounted an extraordinary diplomatic initiative to end the carnage in Europe.
A letter from a prison governor provided an insight into the jails we have inherited from Victorian planners and philanthropists. Their intense vision of social reform can still be traced in the fabric of the buildings themselves.
And a Sussex merchant's diary, surfacing in a Los Angeles archive, shed fascinating light on the scientific revolution at the end of the 17th century.
SAMUEL JEAKE , the Sussex merchant, cast horoscopes for his own life to prove, by the new empirical methods, that astrology really worked. Directors CHRIS MOHR

North by North Dipesto

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.
