(GB) Champion v
Marvin Hagler
(USA) Challenger for The Middleweight Championship of the World
Exclusive coverage from last night's Harry Levene/Mickey Duff promotion at the Wembley Arena, sponsored by DAF Trucks.
Commentator HARRY CARPENTER
After his convincing first title defence in June, when he defeated Vito Antuofermo comfortably in eight rounds, the 29-year-old Briton from Crawley - the only unadisputed world champion in boxing - faces the top contender, a fellow southpaw from Boston. The American claims he should have become champion himself when given a hotly-contested draw in his previous title challenge against Antuofermo last November.

Soka Gakkai v The Rest
The Soka Gakkai is Japanese and Buddhist. The Buddhism it preaches is a road to success: money, promotion, health and happiness. Yet its doctrines come from the strange and fierce teachings of Nichiren, a nationalist zealot of the 13th century. Since the war 10,000,000 Japanese have joined the sect. Each member is taught to chant the sacred syllables Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, and receives an object of worship, a Gohonzon, which is installed in his home.
Many of Soka Gakkai's activities are not religious at all. There are Soka Gakkai schools and a university. Soka Gakkai sponsors music, art and sporting activities. It has its own political party, the ' Clean Government Party'; and its international president, DAISAKU IKEDA , travels the world in the cause of peace.
The Soka Gakkai is successful, but the organisation is not loved. This film tries to discover why. Narrated by PETER FRANCE

: The Silicon Factor

The last of three programmes investigating the so-called microelectronics revolution.
And What of the Future?
How will the silicon chip affect the quality of our lives and our attitudes to work? Starting in America, Bernard Falk visits places already using the new technology to find out what could be in store for white collar, blue collar and professional workers in the next decade. What kind of jobs change or disappear? Are there areas where employment will increase? What will be the effects on the professions? How must our attitudes change if we are to enjoy the benefits of this new revolution and not suffer its worst effects?

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.
