: Real Lives

Victims and villains, leaders and led, the ordinary and the extraordinary. A series of filmed documentaries about the way people live now.
Siva's People .
In the summer of 1983 the tropical island of Sri Lanka, once Ceylon, was torn by bitter communal fighting between the country's two communities. As Singhalese mobs turned on the minority Tamils, hundreds were killed. Siva, a retired schoolteacher, lost his son in the violence:
'When the thought of my son being bludgeoned to death comes to my mind
I feel utterly miserable. But I have no animosity against the Singhalese people, only against the organisers ot this genocide.'
As well as their son, Siva's family lost all their possessions during the violence. One year later, like so many other Tamils, they are trying to rebuild their lives. But what sort of future do they face?

: Top Sailing

Small Boat Sailors are Alive and Well! Each Olympic year brings a resurgence of interest in small boat sailing, and 1984 will be no different.
Since the boom in dinghy sailing in the 1960s, the gathering pace of costly technological development and the British recession have brought about a slow general decline, but among 'aficionados' of the sport there's no lack of keenness, or talent.
Bob Fisher surveys Britain's Olympic prospects and visits the Mecca of club dinghy sailing, the West Lancashire 24-hour race at Southport.

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.
