: The Question of Ulster: The People Talking: Tuesday's Documentary

On St Patrick's Day this year The Question of Ulster - The People Talking was broadcast on BBC1. In a London studio a large group of ordinary men and women from that murderously divided country talked, quietly and sincerely, about the problems of daily life - and some hopeful signs for the future.
After the broadcast there were many demands for another programme, to continue the same theme - and to follow up some of the points raised. So tonight, Catholics and Protestants: housewives, schoolchildren, students, teachers, doctors, nurses, businessmen, shopkeepers, trade unionists and employers come together again. Not just the voices of those who live in the beleaguered areas, but also voices not often heard.


Producer: David Filkin
Editor: Desmond Wilcox

: Professional Boxing: The Heavyweight Championship of Great Britain and the Commonwealth

Harry Carpenter, direct from the Aston Villa Football Ground, introduces coverage of tonight's important title fight.

Jack Bodell (Swadlincote) Champion of Great Britain and the Commonwealth, v
Danny McAlinden (Coventry) The Challenger

The fantastic local support for these two fighters is the reason for promoter Alex Griffiths staging for the first time in a number of years an open-air title fight on one of the most historic football grounds in the country.

Jack Bodell, the champion, who won the titles from Joe Bugner last year and holds victories over Carl Gizzi, Manuel Ramos and Bill Drover, is used to going the full distance and winning. Bodell, a man well known for coming forward and making the action - who will forget his great fight with Billy Walker? - meets tonight an opponent who also likes to make the running.
Danny McAlinden has a reputation for stopping his men inside the distance.

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.
