Return to the Biami
Twenty years ago a young
Australian, Susan Cornwell , was one of the first whites - certainly the first white woman - to trek in to the cannibal people of the Biami in Central New Guinea. With her husband, she made an award-winning film which was seen on the BBC in 1972. Last year she returned.
Instead of nose-plugs (and not much else), the Biami people now wear T-shirts; instead of going on the warpath, they now play soccer. They have been converted from cannibalism to Christianity in just 20 years. It has not been a painless or an easy process, indeed, a few of them remain deep in the rainforest unconvinced....

David Lodge and Norman Stone. Series producer SAM ORGAN Producer ANDREW GOSLING BBC Bristol

Disappearing Childhood This programme outlines Neil Postman 's thesis that childhood is disappearing as a result of watching television. It goes on to show that children are not passive receivers of their culture but active agents in their own socialisation, and that television plays a part in this. Producer ELEANOR MORRIS (R)

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.
