No Easy Road: Michael Buerk 's South Africa
For four years,
Michael Buerk reported on South Africa for BBC Television
News. He saw the country at its best and at its worst. He made many friends, black, white and coloured; he was also shot at, gassed, beaten, locked up, censored, and finally expelled. He cannot go back. But now, using material some of which has never been shown, he tells us what it was really like to live and work on the edge of a racial battleground.
This first programme in a new series of Everyman goes behind the news for a personal look at the country and the people for whom there is 'no easy road'. Film editor RICHARD SEEL Producer STEPHEN WALKER

: Welcome to My World

Six speculations on life in the computer age. with Robert Powell 2: The Leak
Suppose it's the year 2000 and every home has its data terminal and that libraries disappear. Imagine that politics are the business of electronic engineers and that governments maintain computer dossiers on every citizen from birth to death. What if a clandestine group of computer hackers broke into a secret government database and leaked its contents on to every domestic screen? Is that the only way to stop the world of 1984 coming true?

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.
