Rivers to the Sea
Rivers set the tempo for all who join their progress - this film, shot over a period of two years on Canadian rivers, records salmon struggling up river to their spawning grounds, and eels arriving at the freshwater habitat where they grow to maturity. Ospreys, kingfishers, cormorants, beavers and people are among those who feed off the rich variety of prey species.
Produced by JOHN BRETT for the CBC (Canada)

Rich and Poor with Chantal Cuer.
Two films emphasising the stark contrast between rich and poor in France.
The first portrays the glamorous lifestyle of the BCBG - the bon-chic-bongenre - France's answer to Sloane Rangers.
Life is very different for the homeless of Paris. Tonight's second film caused an outcry when it was first shown in France. It paints a shocking picture of the people - some as young as 6 - for whom life is a constant struggle.

Adios General
A portrait of La Victoria , a Chilean shanty town.
After the coup it was our menfolk who were assassinated, arrested and 'disappeared'. We women had to take over and find ways of solving our problems of unemployment and hunger.
ELY OREGANO,
President of La Victoria
Neighbourhood Committee.
Sixteen years ago, General Pinochet's violent military coup ended a long tradition of democracy in Chile. For the Santiago shanty town of La
Victoria this has meant years of brutal repression. In the struggle for survival it is the women who have had to take the lead in organising the community. This film focuses on Hortensia Zavala , whose husband was shot during a demonstration in 1983. She has had to struggle to survive and look after her small son, who is psychologically scarred by his father's assassination. Last year, in the first poll for 15 years, the people voted against
Pinochet. Even as they prepare to say goodbye to the general who has brought torture, repression and death to their homes, they remain apprehensive about their future. As commander-in-chief of the army, Pinochet will remain the power behind the throne.

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.
