The first of ten case studies in multi-cultural education, for discussion by teachers.
How far should children's attitudes to other races and other cultures be of direct concern to teachers, especially In ' all-white ' areas of Britain? And what kind of society are we educating children for? This film illustrates practice at a pre-school in Cumbria, at primary schools in Leicestershire, and at a comprehensive in Milton Keynes , Bucks, where teachers have thought out their response to these questions and begun to act upon it.

: Heaven's My Destination

Since returning from the moon two of the Apollo astronauts - Jim Irwin and Charles Duke - have committed themselves to Christ. Other astronauts have testified to the strong spiritual impact the space experience made on them. For Ed Mitchell it led to the founding of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, dedicated to research into esp, parapsychology and the ' alternative ' sciences.
In the first of 12 Everyman films we report on the other side of the space programme - not its machinery, but its meaning. Space exploration is still in its very early stages, but it has already made us view ourselves and our ' Spaceship Earth' in new ways. As space travel becomes commonplace what effect will it have on us? With the help of those who have already been there Everyman surveys our new home.

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
