MacLeod in Japan


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.
Three films in which Donny MacLeod enjoys an inside view of an exciting, enigmatic country. 1: Tokyo
Tokyo is arguably the most exhilarating and most confusing of the world's capitals. The visitor finds himself overwhelmed by the noise, dazed by the hectic pace and perplexed by the juxtaposition of East and West. What does this city, where exquisite taste still survives amidst the garishness and overcrowding, tell us about the Japanese? Mugging is unknown, so why does violence sometimes feel so uncomfortably close to the surface? DONNY MACLEOD attends a Japanese wedding, plays the country's ever-popular pin-ball game ' Pachinko' and finds himself in the thick of a pulsating street festival.

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.
