: This Year, Next Year

The Problem of Race
1976 was the year Dr Kissinger moved to avert race war in Africa; when Rhodesia's whites accepted black power as inevitable; when America's blacks helped put a white southerner into the White
House; and Britain's blacks fought with police in the streets of London.
The BBC's Foreign Correspondents tonight tackle the world-wide problem of race; not just the tension between blacks and whites, but between other races too. How do other countries treat their immigrants? Do laws bring races together? Can laws keep races apart? Is the Southern African struggle about skin colour or political complexion?
With Charles Wheeler
David Sells and Michael Charlton
Also in the studio:
Brian Barron , Far East
John Humphrys , North America Philip Short , Soviet Union
John Osman , Central Africa Clive Small , Southern Africa and with film reports from our correspondents in Japan, Brazil, Malaysia, Burma, USA, Holland, Africa and Israel.

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.
