Correspondent Special: Kofi Annan: the Eye of the Storm

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.
The foreign-affairs series returns.
In February the United Nations Secretary General, Kofi Annan, made a crucial visit to Iraq as a second Gulf War was becoming a possibility. His diplomatic success in these negotiations afforded him star treatment from the media. This film observes the tense atmosphere in Baghdad as the talks unfolded, and follows Annan on trips to Rwanda, where he struggled to absolve the UN of responsibility for the genocide, and to Nigeria, where he attempted to have former opposition leader Chief Abiola released from jail. The series continues next month.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
