The last of the series 6: Victorian Travel
'... The fable of the Tortoise and the Hare is peculiarly applicable to travellers over wide and unknown tracts. It is a very high merit to accomplish a long exploration without loss of health, of papers, or even of comfort ... '
In 1855 Francis Galton published his Art of Travel. The book became an essential handbook for Victorian explorers, dealing with every aspect of travel in wild countries. Galton gave advice on organising expeditions, filtering muddy water, navigating in the dark, managing savages; and returning home unscathed and triumphant. Christopher Matthew delves into this piece of Victorian eccentricity. with Richard Vernon as Francis Galton and JOCK BEESLEY, JOHN HEMMING , ERIC NEWBY , JOHN JULIUS NORWICH and LAURENS VAN DER POST

The Englishman Abroad by CHRISTOPHER DOUGLAS with Michael Cochrane
Robert Lang, Michael Kitchen, David Threlfall. Douglas Jardine set out in the winter of 1932 with the avowed intent of destroying 'those ruddy convicts'. He was talking about the Australian cricket team and he intended to destroy them with bat and ball and particularly with his major weapon Harold Larwood. The tour became known as the Bodyline Tour and Jardine's tactics earned him the hatred of every Australian.

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.

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