: Under the Sun

Bull Magic
The bulls from the Indonesian islands of Sapudi and Madura are celebrities. They are feted, massaged and live like kings on a special diet of honey, herbs, eggs, chillies and beer. A prize bull is valued not merely for its pedigree but for its speed: they are racing animals.
Bull-racing dominates life on the two islands off the coast of eastern Java, and this film in the series of documentaries about unusual cultures follows the fortunes of two youngjockeys,
20-year-old champion Ayup and 12-year-old Sahmawi, as they prepare for the annual tournament. Training methods are closely guarded secrets and magicians are called upon to cast good-luck spells on their charges - and, sometimes, bad luck on other animals. Ayup's trainer, Hanan, says: "... if anybody messes with my bulls, I'll cut his throat."
The races are spectacular and dangerous, requiring skill and courage to ride the bulls. But this film, directed by John Bulmer , shows how the races are notjust a test of manhood but a statement of identity for both island communities.

: Monty Python's Flying Circus

It is 25 years since new late-night comedy series crept into a "regional opt-out" slot and quickly became cult viewing, a fresh marriage of the Goons' surrealism and the university humour of Beyond the Fringe.
Tonight a rerun of the very first series begins, starring John Cleese , Terry Jones ,
Michael Palin , Eric Idle , the late Graham Chapman and animator Terry Gilliam. From such immediate forerunners as Do Not Adjust
Your Set and At Last the Show a new landmark in British broadcast humour was born.
Tonight meet Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson, follow
Picasso's in the Tour de France, and try not to die laughing at the world's funniest joke.
On Friday at 9.30pm on BBC2 there's a chance to see the 1990 Omnibus film on Monty Python dedicated to Chapman, who died during its production. Producer John Howard Davies

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.
