: Freya Stark

The first of two documentaries celebrating the life and work of explorer and woman of letters Dame Freya Stark, who died last month.
Freya Stark in Italy
For Omnibus in 1982, fellow writer and personal friend John Julius Norwich visited 90-year-old Dame Freya at her family home in the hills north of Venice.
She recalled her bohemian childhood and looked back at her greatest achievements, notably her first long trek into Persia and her mapping of the uncharted territory of the Valley of the Assassins. Stark was the second European woman to venture there, and the first to survive the journey. Her taste for European fashion was also on display: her house was stuffed with the exotic spoils of her many expeditions in the near and middle East.
Extracts from Dame Freya's work are read by Maria Aitken. Director David Cheshire
(Through Syria with Dame Freya Stark, tomorrow8.00pm)


Unknown: John Julius Norwich
Read By: Maria Aitken.

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.
