: Wideworld

Tonight, two films.
In Ghana Coffins there is a new way of easing the grief that surrounds a burial: coffins are flamboyantly shaped according to the occupation of the deceased. So a taxi driver goes to the cemetery in a wooden taxi, a fisherman in a boat, a grandmother in a large speckled hen. Ghana's coffin-makers are doing a good business.
And in Our God the Condor some Andean villagers capture a condor to do ritual battle with a bull. The condor symbolises the free spirit of the native Andeans, the bull the once-conquering
Spaniards. The villagers believe their future fortunes depend on the condor's safe return to the skies.

: Notes in the Margin 1980-89

The fourth of six programmes. Face Values
In the design-obsessed 80s cultures were turned into commodities. The world became a shop and culture became global as television spectaculars promoted the decade's 'we are the world'
Author Stephen Heath argues that this'designer multiculturalism - cultures arranged in pretty patterns on our screens' smoothes over the real problems we face. As the film shifts from the Design Museum to the Rushdie affair, from the international art world to a Sikh wedding in Wolverhampton,
Stephen Heath suggests that in the 90s we will need a fresh approach to human freedom.

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.
