: The Underworld

The illegal drugs trade Is now one of the world's major industries; it is a cornerstone of the underworld's activities. Yet 40 years ago diehard villains regarded drugs, addicts and those who traded with them with distaste. Marijuana was associated with Caribbean immigrants, harder drugs with the narrower jazz world. The underworld had no part in it, and dealers were, in the words of ex-robber Frankie Sims , "disowned, no two ways about it".
And so in the 1960s and 70s drug smuggling was the province of white, well educated, middle-class criminals like Charlie Radcliffe , who came from an army and public-school background, and Oxford physics graduate Howard Marks , for whom cannabis trafficking wasa glamorous crusade. "I smuggled as much cannabis as I could," hehassaid. "This was my destiny, this was my karma."
But as the potential profits of the trade gradually became apparent, the underworld moved in to displace the dilettantes, as is shown in the final programme in the series. Producer Jonathan Dent

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
