: Asian Magazine

Black people in Britain form a small and relatively powerless minority of the electorate, and the few who have joined the main political parties do not have equal opportunities with whites. Yet crude racism is only one of the obstacles they face; as important is the unconscious attitude of those who profess to be their friends. These are the findings of Political Parties and Black People - a Runnymede Trust report. It concludes that the parties cannot look for racial equality in society at large without first putting their own houses in order.
Anita Bhalla talks to the report's author Marian Fitzgerald , J. Gohel ,
Chairman, Anglo Asian
Conservative Society, and former Parliamentary candidates Paul Boateng (Labour) and Zerbanoo Gifford (SDP-Liberal Alliance).

: Everyman

They Shall Take up Serpents Portrait of a sect
'And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out devils.... they shall take up serpents....'
With these words as their guide, members of some churches in West Virginia, USA, handle poisonous snakes in their church services.
This extreme Biblical literalism has been banned in the surrounding states, but in West Virginia it remains legal, despite the occasional deaths of participants.
This film examines the routes of Christian snake handling in the harsh coal-mining environment of the state, and in the traditional Protestant fundamentalism of its people.
The Everyman team gained access to one of the snake-handling services, and filmed scenes of extraordinary religious fervour, never before shown in such detail on television. Narrator Peter France Film editor CHRIS LAWRENCE Series producerDANIEL WOLF Producer BRYNMOR WIUAMS

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.
