: The Colour War

Why is it happening? Will it get worse? Will it happen here?
A documentary investigation written and produced by David Wheeler.
The world has 250 million Negroes. Many live in societies dominated by whites, scattered across four continents from the slums of Rio de Janeiro and Harlem to the back streets of Brixton and the townships of Johannesburg. Their attempts to win equality have opened up an era of racial tension, hatred, and violence which may last for generations. This programme examines the origins and implications of what is perhaps the gravest and most intractable issue of our time.

: The Weather Man

: Viewpoint: Barbara Hepworth, Sculptor

Professor Moelwyn Merchant visits St. Ives to question Dame Barbara Hepworth about the faith expressed in her new 'Construction (Crucifixion)' and in the work which has preceded it.
"I very much wanted to make a Crucifixion which enabled one to recognise the figure of Christ on the Cross and the rudimentary forms to the left and to the right, to make spaces where one could enter and to bring one, as it were, to one's knees. But to do it in a way which entirely fitted the development of my own calligraphy and to be at home on a hill-side, or in an old cathedral or in a new cathedral, and to be valid in all respects 2,000 years hence."

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
