: The Big Time: 2: Tim Davey - Racing Driver

A series of six programmes which gives talented amateurs the chance of their dreams - to take part in a spectacular professional event.
Reporter Norma Shepherd
Tim Davey is a law student, his hobby is go-karting - he dreamed of becoming a racing driver. He never thought that dream would come true. We gave him the chance of competing in a professional race at Brands Hatch. We watched him train for four months, practise with Mark Thatcher, and meet his heroes: James Hunt, Stirling Moss, Mario Andretti, Emerson Fittipaldi, Niki Lauda, Jody Scheckter and Gilles Villeneuve. In the end, we watched him risk his life in his first big race.

: The White Tribe of Africa

Written and presented by David Dimbleby
2: A Band of Brothers
The film which won the Royal Television Society's Supreme Award for the Best Documentary of 1979. At the very heart of Afrikanerdom is a secret society of which virtually nothing is known outside South Africa. It is called the Broederbond, or brotherhood. Its 12,000 members operate in the shadows, dedicated to keeping the Afrikaner in the position of power he holds today and which they have helped secure.
The film tells the story of the Broederbond and with it the rise of the Afrikaner Nationalists. It is the story of the bitter legacy of the Anglo-Boer War when thousands of women and children died in the British concentration camps; the story of the discrimination Afrikaners faced when they sought work in the English-run cities. But will the Broederbond. because of its exclusiveness, now lead to the destruction of the very people it set out to protect?

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.
