: South Africa Sport and the Boycott

A Tuesday Documentary
While a United Nations Conference in London examines ways of lightening sports sanctions against
South Africa, members of the MCC are currently being balloted on whether they should send a . cricket team there, thus breaching those sanctions.
In South Africa itself things have moved on from the 60s, when the Basil D'Oliveira affair brought racial inequalities in sport to the world's attention, today black and. white- piay sport together and compete, for Springbok colours. As a result many people are questioning the justification for sanctions, and asking why pick on South
Africa alone ?
Prompted by them questions; sports journalist and commentator Ron Pickering went to see. the situation at first hand and asked sportsmen, black :and white, for their views. He looks at fire sports .boxing,. 'athletics, cricket, rugby and soccer. His enquiries lead him to hi? own personal conclusions, but 'he sets out to present all shades of conflicting opinion sa that viewers can ,make UP their own minds. film cameraman MIKE SPOONER Film Editor

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.
