: Mountain High, Danger High

Next weekend hundreds of Easter climbers will be on the Scottish hills - more than in any previous weekend. Every winter more people climb, more have accidents, and more have to be rescued.
The rescuers are policemen, climbers, shepherds, soldiers, sailors, airmen, schoolboys ... and tonight's film follows them as they try to save people from death on the mountains.

3: Young and Black
What is it like to be black in a country that thinks of itself as white? What is it like to be born here, educated here, regard the place as home - and yet, because you're black, still feel an outsider? Young black English people tell how it is for them.
' Black kids are told that they're just good for the factory or to go and sweep streets or work with the dustbin men or something like that.'
' People can say that I'm fine because I'm on a television film, but my reason for doing this is to tell the public, the white majority, what blacks think of the society, and what we want to do in society and what we'd like to see society doing for us.' Songs

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
