: Panorama

Crack Crisis - Is Britain Next? Crack - the drug which President Bush says is turning American cities into battle zones - is now starting to appear on some British streets too. Last April one of President Bush's top advisers warned that Britain could have a similar epidemic to
New York within three years. The Americans say the posses - Jamaican gangs who have been called the most violent organised criminals since the 20s - may try to create a crack market here. But those warnings have been greeted with dismay by drug agencies who fear the dangers of crack are being hyped. They say the dealers are unlikely to gain a permanent foothold in Britain.
With access to confidential documents, Panorama has learnt the identity of leading posse members with links to this country. As the first police Crack Squad begins work in Scotland Yard, Panorama accompanies American and British detectives as they track the dealers down, and films those most affected by crack - from newborn babies in New York to a young British couple who fear their own baby will be a crack addict.
Steve Bradshaw reports from New York, the American Midwest and London on the true dangers of crack and the dealers' chances of extending their empire across the Atlantic.

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.
