Duncan Dares

Dragon Boat Races
Travelling half-way around the world to be thrashed by the Far Easterns at their national sport seems an odd assignment for Peter Duncan. But after weeks of strenuous training with the men of the North East Amateur Rowing Club, they were ready for allcomers and off to exotic Hong Kong.

Commando Yomp
The 30-mile speed march is a legend in the Royal Marines. It's a race against the clock across some of the roughest country in Britain and the climax to a week of arduous muscle-sapping commando tests. The Royal Marine

Stanley in The Falklands.
Peter Duncan finds out the hard way how they had the stamina and courage to do it. Films editor JERRY LEON Producer ALEX LEGER

Duncan Dares

Climber

With Everest mountaineer
Doug Scott as his guide, Peter climbs up one of the most difficult and beautiful rocks in Britain, which only 20 years ago was considered unclimbable. Film cameramen

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.
