: 'UP AGAINST IT'

' Lost in the Sahara '
A. E. Filby
Among the adventures so far described in this exciting series have been Captain Dingle's story of being cast away on a desert island, J. L. Longland 's experiences in a Mount Everest blizzard, Edwin Heath 's account of his capture by South Sea island cannibals, Captain Norman Macmillan 's experiences when he was adrift on a sea plane- float in the Bay of Bengal for two days and nights without food and water, and Sir Alan Cobham 's adventures in fog over the Adriatic.
Tonight's story has an African setting. A. E. Filby , who has travelled extensively in the lesser-known parts of Africa, was involved two years ago in a highly disagreeable adventure in the Sahara. While making the journey between two forts of the Foreign Legion, he and a companion were overtaken by a desert sandstorm which completely obliterated all landmarks. They were held up for a considerable time and, but for several pieces of good fortune, might not have won through.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
