Weather followed by Sir Mortimer Wheeler
The Viceroy Sent for Me One's whole life is devoted to re-creating the past and making it live.
Sir Mortimer's battlecry until the day he died in 1976. The second of two Chronicle films on the life of the great archaeologist takes him from a Roman trading station on the Bay of Bengal to Mohenjo Daro - the great city of the Indus civilisation. In 1950 he returned to Britain to begin a new career - in television, where he enchanted millions with his deep desire to pass his knowledge on to others. Produced by DAVID COLLISON

An Invitation to Return
The children of the Oldham Theatre Workshop are rehearsing the musical Bugsy Malone for performance in the Tameside Theatre, Ashton-under-Lyne. The cast is 300 strong.
'When we go into the theatre, I don't want a bill for damage to dressing rooms,' says director David Johnson. 'What I do want is an invitation to return.' The problems of production come thick and fast. People in the design department have to build a yellow Rolls-Royce with working lights. Props are having trouble making the 'splurge guns' fire foam over everyone. The revolving stage has yet to work properly and the stage manager has to work out how to cope with hundreds waiting in the wings.
What every woman should know about pensions
'I'm a retired woman; can I claim for a dependant husband?'
'Why am I getting only 25p a week graduated pension?' 'How much can I earn before my husband's pension is affected?'
Pensions are no longer a man's preserve. More and more women are claiming pensions in their own right. But it's a complex matter to ensure that you are getting the right amount.
Margo MacDonald examines state, occupational and personal pension plans as they affect women.

A monthly anthology of travel, exploration and adventure - worldwide
Narrated by Anthony Hopkins
Every year, like birds migrating south, a few hundred men take to the air and fly to Africa - in the spirit of the first aviators - for the pleasure of living dangerously. Their job? To seed thunderclouds, spray locusts, dust crops and fly emergency missions from the roughest of strips.
'It must be the last frontier of true flying,' they say, 'real seat-of-the-pants stuff - low, fast, dangerous.'
To men like Abercromby-
Dick, Max Lacey and Paddy McKay it's the only way to live.
Kenya and the Sudan form a breathtaking backdrop to their exploits.

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.
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.
