: Forgotten Pilots

Presented by David Lomax Today's programme concludes the story of the women who flew in the Second World War with the Air Transport Auxiliary. Today, he tells of the all-women ferry pool at Hamble, near Southampton, and of their adventures flying their aircraft with no navigation aids or radio. How, just three years after flying small club aeroplanes, women like Joan Hughes were piloting the biggest bombers and how American girls crossed the Atlantic to join them. At the end of the war, they quietly returned to civilian life, their achievements quickly forgotten.

: Horizon

Trial in the Jungle
The Tasaday, a remote
Philippine tribe living 'in the Stone Age', are now seen as a famous scientific hoax. But when they were first discovered, in 1971, they were hailed as the anthropological find of the century.
How did these people dupe every scientist who went to see them? Some say they deserved Oscars for their performances, some say that the scientists were romantics searching for noble savages. Horizon has investigated the extraordinary story and arrived at a quite different conclusion. Weigh up the evidence from their stone tools, their language, their knowledge of plants and.... perhaps there wasn't a hoax at all.

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.
