: In Search of the White Rajahs

Travel documentary with a difference as Joanna Lumley journeys to the jungles of what was once wild Borneo (now Malaysia) to tell the story of the fabled British rulers of the north-western territory of Sarawak. When in 1841 an English soldier of fortune defeated a pirate fleet in the waters of northern Borneo, he was rewarded by the grateful Sultan of Brunei with the jungle kingdom of Sarawak. So began a romantic, exotic dynasty which was to survive until 1946. Joanna Lumley looks at the reality behind the romance as she explores the legacy of the White Rajahs.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
