Nothing to Lose by MBONGENI NGEMA (co-author of the award-winning Woza Albert ) starring Solomzi Bisholo
Thami Cele , Bongani Hlophe Bheki Mgadi , Boy Ngema with a guest appearance by Mbongeni Ngema
Five blacks in South Africa end up in jail - for crimes which range from shooting a security policeman to sleeping with a white boss's wife. What they all share is the conviction that the 'Day of Reckoning' is at hand. Asinamali was filmed in Johannesburg during the State of Emergency - before an audience which included Winnie Mandela. The play proved highly controversial. One performance was interrupted by an armed mob, who were out to kill the author: but failing to find him, they killed the play's promoter instead.
Written, directed and acted by blacks from the townships, the play offers a rare insight into the causes of violence in South Africa today. Production manager ROZELLE VOGELMAN
Photography VINCENT G. COX Film editor CLARE DOUGLAS

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.
