Second of two special children's programmes. Forty children from St Mark 's Catholic School, Hounslow, Middx, play an unusual "game" that puts them in the hot seat during a fictitious world cocoa crisis.
In West Africa the imaginary country Gwinelia is gripped by crisis following a coup. Its vital cocoa industry is in turmoil, and millions of its people are victims of poverty and disease. Around the world the price of cocoa has soared, and on Britain's high streets the cost of chocolate bars looks set to rocket. How will the different groups involved cope? With the voice of Tom Baker as "the Controller".

Barcelona vSampdoria
Live uninterrupted coverage of the 37th European Cup final.
For the fifth time Wembley has the privilege of hosting the final of European football's premier competition. In 1968,
Manchester United created history there, by beating

Benfica, and became the first Italian team to win the cup.
Tonight, Sampdoria will hope to become the fourth team on that roll of honour and join AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus. Wembley's other final in 1971 saw Ajax beat Panathinaikos.
Thenjohan Cruyff inspired the Dutch side's victory. Tonight
Cruyff hopes his Barcelona side can become the 19th different champions in the competition's illustrious history.
Commentary by Barry Davies with Trevor Brooking.

: Inside Story

Continuing the investigative documentary series.
Dogs of War. A story of British mercenaries. The bloody Yugoslavian civil war has become a magnet for many men attracted to violence. "I've always wanted to kill legally.
I've always wondered what was going through the Yorkshire Ripper's mind. He had no compassion, no feeling. I want this state, it's like higher than any drug," says Dave, a British mercenary there.
The UN-sponsored cease-fire has failed to bring peace to what was Yugoslavia. Already,
10,000 lives have been lost. Bosnia-Herzegovina is descending into full-scale civil war. This film provides a close, disturbing and frank insight into the minds of a group of British mercenaries licensed to kill for another country's cause. It is the story of Kit, Carl, Dave and Andy, all members of the only English-speaking company in the Croatian Army, based in Osijek, Croatia's eastern capital, which at present is under daily artillery bombardment. Tensions are high as the men prepare for dangerous sabotage operations behind enemy lines. Kit, the chief training officer, a big, tough, Geordie ex-paratrooper and French Legionnaire, leads these operations while being paid little more than E 100 a month. Not all the mercenaries are prepared to obey orders, and some resent having non-professionals in charge.
Allowed rare access to British mercenaries at work, the film presents a powerful insight into the mercenary myth and the realities of soldiering. Producer Stephen Lambert

: Film 92 Special: the Cannes Film Festival

Barry Norman reports from the Cannes Film Festival, the annual orgy of film watching and film hyping. "I do enjoy Cannes but, believe it or not, it's hard work," says Norman. "Last year Madonna brought back the showbiz razzmatazz.
This year - who knows? I'll be playing it on the hoof, and I hope to speak to Michael Douglas and director Robert Altman about their new films." It is easy to forget that there is a competition running alongside the festivities. A front runner for an award is Robert Altman's The Player, a wicked satire on Hollywood. Britain's hopes rest with Terence Davies 's The Long Day Closes, an autobiographical film about his Liverpool childhood, and Merchant/Ivory compete with the EM Forster classic
Howard's End. Among the famous faces expected on the Croisette are Anthony Hopkins, Alan Rickman, Melanie Griffiths, Joe Pesci and Michael Douglas, the star of Paul Verhoeven 's controversial new thriller Basic Instinct, which opens the event. Director Liz Hartford

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.
