: Wideworld

Second of twoprogrammes Adventure: The Climbers Tonight, two contrasting climbs - and not a snowflake in either of them.
First, on the small island of Foula, the most remote of the Shetlands, is the highest sea-cliff in Britain - the unclimbed 1,300ft Kame.
Abigail Mann , a keen but inexperienced climber, heard about the Kame; in three months she put together an expedition of some of the best climbers in the country.
Second, Catherine Destivelle , one of the fastest freestyle climbers in the world, relies on perfect co-ordination and her steely finger-tips as she defies gravity on a wind-swept Saharan rock-face.
Far below, the local people watch in amazement.
First shown earlier in the year, this film has aroused considerable interest. Film editor BRYCE CLAYTON Producers SID PEROU and TIM SLESSOR

: The Artist's Eye

Second of six programmes. Paula Rego
Germaine Greer has described Paula Rego 's power as 'undeniably, obviously, triumphantly female'.
'These paintings ... set the nerves deliciously and disturbingly on edge', wrote William Packer.
Her work has always been powerful and has contained 'secrets', but it has seen many changes; the methods have ranged from drawing, through collage to painting. Her characters have moved from primitive cyphers to a cast of boisterous animals and, more recently, young girls in strange, sometimes threatening interiors.
In The Artist's Eye,
Paula Rego looks back on the work of 35 years, revealing the enthusiasms and events that have helped shape what she calls 'the story of my life in images'.

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.
