: The Day That Changed My Life: A Nomad in New York

The second of six programmes about momentous events and how they affect people's lives.
Waris Dirie fled her Somalian desert home when, at the age of 13, she found out that her father intended to sell her to a 60-year-old man in exchange for four camels. She came to Britain in 1982 and, five years later, was discovered by photographer
Terence Donovan who put her on the cover of the Pirelli calendar.
This programme offers a personal insight into Waris's remarkable transformation from nomad to international supermodel, and culminates in her first journey back to Africa and a reunion with her mother after 15 years.

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.
