Wish We Were There
This summer thousands of holidaymakers spent part of their precious annual excursion waiting in the departure lounges of the south east's major airports. Delays and congestion now seem to be a fact of life when travelling by air in Europe - but for how long? Antonia Higgs looks at the present problems and the future solutions for one of the region's biggest industries - an industry which is expected to transport
100 million passengers a year by the end of the century. Producer MICHAEL DAVIDSON Series producer PETER LOWE Editor COLIN STANBRIDGE

: Eye to Eye

Triumph and Tragedy Rudolph Dunbar was a remarkable black man of his time - a classical clarinetist, war correspondent and symphony conductor. Born in British Guyana in 1907, Dunbar leapt into the spotlight in 1942 when he made his conducting debut with the London
Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall. It was the start of an international career which saw him conduct major orchestras all over the world during the 40s and 50s. But in England, where he lived and worked for much of his life, he was never truly successful again, and died a bitter and impoverished man. In his unfinished autobiography he claims that there were powerful elements within the English music establishment working against him. This film takes the title of that book, Triumph and Tragedy, and describes the life of this talented but ultimately frustrated musician. Director MILTON BRYAN

: Under African Skies: 2: Ethiopia

A celebration of the new sounds of a continent.
'Most people see my country as a place of famine and civil war. But there is another, more enduring side. We are a people with a long history.' Thus singer Aster Aweke introduces the second film in this series. Neither quite African nor Arabic, the contemporary sounds of Ethiopia draw their inspiration from powerful and ancient sources - the mesmeric singing of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church; the subtle and elliptical quality of amharic poetry; and the quick-witted satire of Ethiopia's troubadours, the Azmaris. Ethiopia has been described as being in Africa, but not of it. Eight thousand feet up on its highland plateau, never successfully colonised, it tenaciously holds to its own ways.
Although weary and scarred by the events of recent years, this spirit persists in the unique and haunting beauty of its music.

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.
