Eight portraits presented by Hugh O'Shaughnessy 3: Estrada
'We've had more visitors since they opened the new road than in the previous 300 years.' Estrada, on Costa Rica's
Atlantic coast, is a railway village - the railway line is the main street, and until recently it was the only connection with the capital, San Jose. Now, life in Estrada is changing, and white. Spanish-speaking Catholics are beginning to outnumber the black, English-speaking Anglicans.

1: Geronimo: He Who Yawns 'When the last red man shall have perished and the memory of my tribe shall have become a myth among the white man, these shores will swarm with the invisible dead of my tribe.' Leader of the Chiricahua Apache, Geronimo led his people against the military might and colonising armies of the United States and Mexico. It finally took 10,000 soldiers to capture him and his 19 warriors in 1886. He was never allowed to return to his desert homeland of Arizona; instead, he was dumped in the damp, swampy climate of Florida, where he died aged 79.

The Future of the Seven Deadly Sins
Twenty-seven per cent of the Radio 4 Generation think royalty should be abolished. Sixty-seven per cent believe riots in our cities will become more common. So what are they proud of? This programme, from the Third Eye Centre in Glasgow, asks what's wrong with being proud of yourself or your achievements. Is it really a sin?
Chairman John Humphrys Producers BILL MORRIS and JANE BERTHOUD
Since the performing arts began, men have been playing women, and women have been playing men. But in the last 20 years, with changing attitudes to the roles of men and women. how are actors and actresses, singers, comedians and comediennes altering their vision of the way the opposite sex behaves on stage?

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.
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.
