: Under the Sun

Women of the Yellow Earth
At the end of this remarkable glimpse into a closed society, two women become neighbours in one of the villages of the Yellow Earth district in northern
China. Their houses are caves cut into the cliff terraces.
One arrives in procession from the neighbouring village for her wedding party. It is an informal affair but, at the same time, a huge step for the bride, leaving her own village behind and becoming absorbed into the groom's family. They have already made the major commitment of their arranged marriage - buying the TV set for the marital home.
The other woman, Bai, and her husband Erping have had their television confiscated. This is because they have had a third child, one more than allowed in the new China. But there is a worse penalty. Bai undergoes a brusque sterilisation operation and then has to walk away from the operating table. She must then struggle back to her village over the mountains, to the house next door to the bride.

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.
