Alan Whicker aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2 on her three-month winter voyage around the Pacific.
Hong Kong - Qingdao
'A different adventure every day....'
In the last of this series of four programmes the QE2 reaches the two Chinas - capitalist and communist.
At Hong Kong 2,000 workers swarm over the liner - and leave her whiter than white. At Qingdao in Red China the city almost comes to a halt as the cruisers disembark.
Made-up children chant their doll-like welcomes to these 'visitors from another planet', while in the stadium, before 20,000 Chinese, the QE2 football team takes on Qingdao's best.
Nigel Broakes , the man who in effect owns the QE2, talks about her future - and his passengers reflect upon their comfortable adventure ... Film editor IAN PITCH

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.
