: The Heart of Apartheid: Tuesday's Documentary

A film by Hugh Burnett
What is the truth about South Africa?
Apartheid, South Africa's policy of separate development, is based on the view of the country's white minority that they are the most developed group, best equipped, best able to judge the destiny of their society. The South African Government is the usual spokesman for the majority of people in South Africa - the non-whites.

Following the documentary White Africa, which gave the opinions of South Africa's whites, Hugh Burnett has been back to the Republic to investigate the feelings and opinions of its non-white peoples. Tonight's documentary looks at the country solely through their eyes, to discover how they feel about a policy which will determine the survival of the white man in Southern Africa.

: Contrasts: Angus Wilson on The Sex War

A series of music and arts features.

Angus Wilson traces the predicament of women in English fiction from Samuel Richardson's Clarissa, through Dickens, Virginia Woolf, and up to the heroines of Margaret Drabble's novels. But this solo performance is no lecture: it is a compelling and controversial argument, illustrated richly both with quotations from literature and stories from Angus Wilson's own experience, that the female sex have been the victims of a social conspiracy and that the history of this conflict is vividly reflected in the great English novels of the last 150 years.


Presenter: Angus Wilson
Director: Leslie Megahey
Producer: Julian Jebb

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.
