2/4. Saudi Arabia. Kate Humble continues her journey along the ancient trade route used to carry the resin from the shores of the Arabian Sea to the wealthy cities around the Mediterranean coast.
On a thousand-mile trek across Saudi Arabia, she travels by camel, glider and boat on an exploration of the often mysterious nation. After enjoying the sumptuous world of the kingdom's richest man, Kate journeys to the other end of the social spectrum when she meets a remote mountain tribe whose ancestors once guarded the pathways along which the merchants travelled, but who now live on the fringes of Saudi society. Finally, she discovers the treasures of an untouched and ancient shipwreck that used to carry frankincense through the waters of the Red Sea.

5/6. TV Experts. Television can be a wonderful medium for education - but not when the words of wisdom come courtesy of a know-it-all who's far too smug for his own good. Luckily, as Clive Anderson is delighted to reveal, the camera is always there when their superiority is finally found wanting and their red faces turn out to be worth a thousand words.

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.
