: Rough Guide to the World: The Bahamas

Continuing the new seven-part series for independent travellers.
This week, Magenta DeVine and Simon O'Brien go to the Caribbean islands of the Bahamas. In Nassau, they visit the casinos catering to the 2.5 million tourists who arrive every year by cruise liner. While Simon finds out why it is illegal for Bahamians to gamble, Magenta discovers "the most powerful aphrodisiac in the world" and meets men who have five girlfriends at once.
This liberal attitude to sex has its limits, they discover - young gay people mostly leave for the US, whose culture dominates the islands. And on idyllic Harbour Island they check out naked picnics and visit Spanish Wells, a bizarre enclave of white Bahamians.

: Reputations

Pablo Escobar - How Cocaine Conquered a Country
The last programme in the series focuses on Pablo Escobar, the Colombian cocaine king who was shot dead in December 1993. The most notorious gangster since Al Capone , Escobar is still a hero to many in his home town of Medellfn. Born into poverty, he soon turned from petty crime to drug smuggling and, by using the terror techniques of murder and torture, amassed a fortune estimated at$4 billion. Award-winning director Bill Cran and a film crew travelled to Bogota and Medellin, two of the most dangerous cities in the world, to interview members of Escobar's family, victims of his threats and kidnappings, agents of the US Drug Enforcement
Agency and Escobar's fellow criminals. The result is a portrait of the man behind the gangster image of "el patron", the boss.

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.
