6/6. As his expedition nears its final stop, Bruce witnesses the bitter battle that's being fought over an area of the rainforest, between the indigenous Kayapo tribe and the cowboys who are cutting down vast areas of jungle for cattle farming. He sees if there is a balance that can be struck between the country's position as the world's largest exporter of beef and soya, and looks at the environmental consequences for the region.

(Repeated on Thursday at 12.05am)

Pick of the Day: Documentary
Amazon with Bruce Parry 9.00pm BBC2, BBC HD
It's the end of Bruce Parry's odyssey and he concludes on an angry, passionate note. Not overtly angry - Parry is just far too nice and well-brought up to be so uncouth. He has a polite rant after he leaves the Kayapo tribe, who have just made him an honorary son with the tribal name "Tree Full of Flowers". The Kayapo are a media-savvy bunch who know the value of a camera crew, and make no bones about using Parry as the medium for their message - that their way of life is being destroyed.
The Kayapo fear their livelihood is under threat from plans for a huge dam. They are powerful advocates - "Bruce, be firm and join our fight for nature" - as they daub themselves in some stunning war paint before dancing for the cameras. (Alison Graham)

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.

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.
