In the summer of 1980 a beautiful old sail-training ship, the Sorlandet, restored and re-rigged. sailed from south Norway to join the tall-ships race in the Baltic. Only the captain had sailed the Sorlandet before; he had just seven days to teach his international crew of young trainees to sail her.

A Tuesday Documentary
"The Negro: idleness, treachery, stealing, lying, nastiness ... the Negro is an awful example of the corruption of man left to himself."
And that's from the Encyclopaedia Britannica - the 1810 edition!
Griff Rhys Jones impersonates the author of this and other such remarkable writings of the 18th and 19th centuries. They might be funny if they weren't so appalling-and it is something of a tribute to human tolerance that young British blacks today can laugh together at the 1980s version:
You know, you finish a football match, everyone is sweating, and you pass a bottle to your white mate, who says Oh, ta, mmm', and he tips it about four inches above his mouth, and you've been taking extra care to wipe the top.
But behind the laughter, there's anger - and a growing movement of determined young activists who are saying NO to racism in white Britain.

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.
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.
