A special edition featuring the work of West Indian artists, writers, musicians and film-makers.
Introduced by Joe Melia
Among the main events:
Black Blast
A theatre event which explores the history of the colonisation of the Caribbean islands and its consequences through music, mime and dance.
The Ministry of Deliverance
A filmed service at The Pentecostal Church of God at the Angel, Islington - incantation, possession of the spirit, and the ecstatic experience of words and music that are at the roots of Caribbean expression.
Poetry and Prose

Going to Sunday School
A filmed visit to 'The Coleherne' - a pub in Earls Court which every Sunday lunchtime turns Caribbean. West Indians from all over London come to meet socially and listen to the Kaiso (Calypso) music of Russell Henderson and his band and other musicians who drop in. (Radio Times People: page 5)

The latest musical craze to come out of the West Indies and achieve a wide popularity - presented by one of its most extraordinary performers, Count Prince Miller, with the backing Of 'New Religion.' plus studio designs by Althea McNish, incorporating the work of West Indian artists, audience discussion - and whatever or whoever else turns up.

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.
