: Travellers in Time

Second of six films of early exploration introduced from the Royal Geographical
Society by Duncan Carse Pearls and Savages (1921) This film, some of the first shot in the South Seas, is the story of an early expedition to the 'vast mystery island of Papua, inhabited by savages, largely untrodden by white men'.
The expedition filmed pearl divers in action, and the arrival of the first seaplanes in Papua. They witnessed spectacular dance ceremonies, grotesquelymasked witch doctors and finally, pressing ever deeper into 'the lawless realms of cannibalism', they discovered a real bonanza - stuffed heads. Not just skulls, which were plentiful, but human heads!

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about real lives now.
The Gypsies Are Coming...Each year, in June, nearly 3,000 gypsies and travellers converge on the sleepy
Cumbrian town of Appleby to hold their traditional horse fair. For locals it is a ten-day nightmare. Police presence in the town is multiplied, pubs are boarded up, children taken out of school, and the residents of Appleby feel forced to maintain a constant vigil over their property.
But Appleby is the last great gypsy horse fair. William and Jeannie Nicholson , from one of the oldest travelling families, find the residents' attitude offensive, to them typical of a racism that threatens their whole way of life. Yet despite the pressures, horse dealing continues, Fair Hill is covered with colourful tethered cobs, trotters and ponies, and much ready money changes hands. How much longer can it continue?

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.
