: Secrets of the Forbidden City

In the middle of Beijing sit the surviving buildings of the former Chinese imperial Palace, collectively known as the Forbidden City. Built predominantly from wood in the early 15th century, for hundreds of years the facts behind its creation, initiated by the great
Ming Emperor Yongle, have been clouded in secrecy. But using neglected chronicles from the period, some translated into English for the first time, this drama documentary reveals how Yongle betrayed his own family and killed all in his path to reach the throne, before building his gilded prison stocked with concubines, guarded by eunuchs and rife with greed, treachery and sin. Narrated by Cheri Lunghi.

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
