The Wind of Change: Screen Two: Return to Blood River


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.
Douglas Livingstone has direct experience of the tensions in South Africa. On a research visit there last summer, he was mugged within 24 hours of arriving in Johannesburg. Over the following week the East Rand riots claimed 600 lives.
Livingstone's plays are frequently based on trips to locations, such as the Australia-based Boys from the Bush, Drums along Balmoral Drive (set in Zimbabwe) and We'll Support You Ever More (in Belfast).
Return to Blood River features Kevin McNally as Terry, returning to his native South Africa after the murder of his father. He tries to restore family relationships, but finds conflict.

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.
