: The Saturday Feature

Echoes of Lost Tibet
Two programmes about the memories of British travellers on the 'roof of the world'.
Presented by John Snelling 2: The Forbidden Land
Life in the old Tibet was replete with colourful ritual and pageantry, and important festivals were liberally dotted through the calendar. Signs, portents and prognostications also played a large part in the lives of the Tibetans. No project or journey could be undertaken if the time was not auspicious, and even the government was influenced by such things.

: The Mischief Makers

Five studies in talent and perversity
4: Aleister Crowley
'Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.' 'Love is the law - law under will.'
Crowley, poet, mountaineer and black magician, looms in some ways larger and more sinister today than at the time of his death in a seedy Hastings boarding-house nearly 40 years ago. With help from those who knew him or have written about him - Arthur Calder-Marshall . Robin Cecil , Francis King ,
Angela Yorke - and the voice of the master himself. Frances Donnelly tries to disinter the facts from the fiction obscuring the life of a man who delighted in being styled 'the wickedest man in the world'.

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.
