: Muhammad ALI

Most boxers can't even talk ...
This summer the World Heavyweight Champion had three important appointments. One was with JOE BUGNER in Kuala Lumpur; the other two took place in the United States. BBC cameras accompanied MUHAMMAD ALI back home to Louisville, Kentucky, to visit his old haunts, meet the Mayor and open a new boxing school, and also to Harvard University where he gave the graduation speech to the Class of 1975. Ali talks candidly about his family and his feelings on returning home, the fact that he never received an education like the students at Harvard and then he takes over the camera to direct a conducted tour of his home in Deer Lake, Pennsylvania.

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.

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.
