: The Great Wall of Iron

A two-part special report by Mark Brayne on the People's Liberation Army of China.
1: The People's Army?
For months before the bloody events of Tiananmen Square, reporter Mark Brayne and a joint BBC and Australian television team were filming with units of this huge fighting force.
No Western cameras have had such access.
Rarely have serving Chinese soldiers spoken so frankly to outsiders.
This film traces the bloody story of how Mao Tse-Tung 's peasant army brought
Communism to power in 1949 and kept it there during the turbulent days of the Cultural Revolution. It examines the paradox of a modern army that insists it serves the people yet is ready to kill its fellow citizens when ordered. (Part 2 tomorrow at 9. 00pm)

Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss use games to open up our understanding of the world's natural forces. Their work pushes the mundane to the point of magic.

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.
