How to Kiss
Director Bill Ptympton


Director: Bill Ptympton

: Open Space

The series in which the public make programmes under their own editorial control.
Until the Lions. This provocative but entertaining film showcases the rapidly expanding social movement "Afrocentrism". Leo Chester, a rising star of the comedy circuit, explains why people of African descent worldwide are challenging the complacent assumptions which downgrade and dismiss the contribution of Africa to world civilisation. And some British Africans and African Americans air their views on the growth of Afrocentrism. Made by Kenny Bakie of Mwalimu, an African educational group, the title is taken from an old African proverb: "Until the lions have their historians, tales of hunting will always glorify the hunter." Director Jackie Osei-Tutu
Executive producer Giles Oakley

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.
