: The Yellow River

Last programme in a six-part series
Towards the Delta
The river rises on the remote plateaux of Asia. Three thousand miles later, it ebbs away among windswept mud flats along the Gulf of Bo-Hai. Along its twisting course, over the centuries, different religions and philosophies have taken root -
Confucianism, Buddhism,
Taoism. Despite the turmoil and official credos of the last 40 years, they are all very much alive today.
Written and narrated by Stephen Jessel , former BBC correspondent in China. Film editor KEITH wilton
Producer viviana WOODRUFF
An NHK production in association with BBCtv

: Chiara and Me and Him

(Io, Chiara e lo Scuro) starring
Francesco Nuti as Francesco
Giuliana de Sio as Chiara
This off-beat comedy reunites the successful team of prizewinning director Maurizio Ponzi and popular cabaret star
Francesco Nuti in one of the greatest Italian cinema successes of the 1980s.
Francesco is obsessed by billiards. He is ecstatic when he beats the local champion, Scuro. But Scuro demands a return match and before long Francesco finds himself in trouble - 'borrowing' from his employers to meet his debts. And, as if that weren't enough, there's the pretty girl downstairs whose saxophone case is identical to Francesco's cue case.
Screenplay by FRANCO FERRINI

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.
