from Edmonton and Tottenham
Last October a vicious riot erupted on the Broadwater Farm estate in Tottenham, North London. One year later Cliff Michelmore talks to some of the people involved. He meets the Wiltshires, whose home was damaged, and a policeman who was severely injured in the fighting. Cliff also discovers hope in a project designed to help young people find employment. Christians from Edmonton and Tottenham sing their songs of praise in the parish church of All Saints, Edmonton, which is celebrating its 850th anniversary.
Thine be the the glory (Maccabaeus); Dear Lord and Father of mankind (Repton); Make me a channel of your peace; Great is thy faithfulness; Jesu, lover of my soul (Aberystwyth); A cry in the night (Notting Hill); Jerusalem; Let there be peace on earth.

Jihad - Afghanistan's Holy War
This BAFTA award-winning series returns with a remarkable documentary, probably the most revealing portrait of Afghanistan at war yet made.
Taking over a year to make, and filmed at great personal risk, Jihad contains sequences of combat, interrogation of prisoners, and daily life under Soviet occupation. It concentrates on a group of Afghan warriors, based in Kandahar, the country's second largest city. They include a 9-year-old street assassin and a chief executioner of the Islamic
Court. Several were captured or killed during the making of the film.
The war in Afghanistan is nearly seven years old: it has cost over 1,000,000 lives, and created 4,000,000 refugees.
But coverage of it in the West has been sparse. This film shows the war at closer quarters than ever before. Everyman editor DANIEL WOLF Cameraman ALEX LINDSAY Directed by JEFF B. HARMON

: Discovering Animals

Fifth of eight programmes on the mammals of Britain by Tony Soper
Red, roe and fallow are all native species of deer.
Stalking the 'Monarch of the Glen' in Scotland may be fun but it is not the best or easiest way of seeing a good red stag. Drive through London's
Richmond Park however, and you'll come close to both red and fallow. But to see a roe deer you'll need your wits about you - either that, or a plentiful supply of roses! Film editor HUGH TASMAN Producer BRYN BROOKS (R)
Book, £8.95/£4.95, by Tony Soper - a practical guide to the 27 common species of British mammal - is available from booksellers.

: The Sky at Night

The Autumn Sky
Autumn skies may be less brilliant than those of other seasons, but there is plenty of interest. In this programme Patrick Moore discusses the main features, with special reference to binocular observations, and gives a timetable for the eclipse of the moon which will be seen on 17 October. And the continuing story of Halley's Comet. The latest stunning series of black and white pictures from Giotto's camera - seen for the first time on television - will give scientists the clues to exactly what organic materials the comet contains.

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.
