Cliff Michelmore travels to
Nyon on Lake Geneva to meet Gwen Cashmore , a former missionary to Uganda at the time of General Amin, who now works for the World Council of Churches: 'Africa taught me, Africa converted me ... if I have any understanding of what it means to be members of each other in the body of Christ it comes out of that African experience.'
Gwen's choice of music is sung in Rye parish church by the RYE MADRIGALIA and ST
MARY'SCHOIR. Including Psalm 139, '0 thou who earnest from above', 'Were you there when they crucified my Lord?' and the summer carol.

: Drugwatch

Presented by Esther Rantzen and Nick Ross
I don think I'm going to reach 21 at the moment. I've taken several overdoses just through feeling totally hopeless.
I just feel it's such a waste of a good life -he didn't deserve to end his life like that.
With the help of the largest survey into drug abuse in Britain; reports from home and abroad; a study of addicts, ex-addicts, users, their families and professionals; the reactions and response of the Government's 'Mini-
Cabinet' -Drugwatch asks what can, or should be, done about the present drugs crisis.
Two thousand users and families have written to
Drugwatch frankly and fully of their experience. Users started young-two-thirds of the survey began taking drugs before the age of 16-and the younger they started, the more likely they were to end up in serious trouble. But the good news of the survey is that over half the heroin addicts had kicked their habit, though practically all said it had changed their lives drastically.
Drugwatch tells how people start, how they get hooked and how some get off. But most important, it asks how can the tragedies and the waste be prevented. The message of the survey is clear: friends, not pushers, are at the core of Britain's drug problem. They are why and how people start. The hope for the future is that children can be taught to resist those pressures and have the choice to 'JUST SAY
NO'.

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.
