: All I Ask is a Tall Ship....

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.
This is the story of that week at sea, as seen by one of those aboard the ship, Stan Hugill , 74.

: Black

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
