Whicker's World: Singapore 999

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Alan Whicker dials Singapore 999
Tonight we hit Arab Street

A chicken squawks, a cry of death, a knife flashes, and the spouting blood religiously collected cleanses the sins of a dead woman. The Chinese have many traditions, but in the new city state of Singapore things must change. A multi-racial society is not easy to control, and in this impression of Singapore Alan Whicker observes its police force: patrolling its seas for infiltrators; discussing murder and kidnap; raiding opium dens; dealing with secret societies; steering an ancient society towards a newer way of life.

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.
