Mandela's Promised Land
In 1987 the BBC's Michael Buerk (along with Peter Sharp of ITN) was refused a renewal of his work permit to report from South Africa - effectively he was expelled, as part of the increasing government clampdown on coverage of the apartheid regime.
Now Buerk has returned to follow and talk to a man who was then a prisoner, Nelson Mandela , in the build-up to an election that should confirm him as president of the country that once tried to crush him.
Can the country Michael Buerk knew really become the nation Mandela has dreamed of for 75 years? Mandela talks to Buerk about his early life, the days of his imprisonment and his solitary decision to open talks with the white government. Producer indra de Lanerolle
EditorGlenwyn Benson

: Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Bringing together a wealth of fresh, largely female talent, this three-part adaptation of Jeanette Winterson 's novel took great risks when it was first screened four years ago.
Beeban Kidron had never directed a television drama,
Phillippa Giles had never produced, and 7-year-old actress Emily Aston had never acted beyond the school stage. But the series went on to win two
Bafta awards: for best serial, with a best actress award for
Geraldine McEwan as the religiously fanatic mother.
Mother adopted Jess with the sole intention of devoting her to the Lord, and in tonight's openingepisode the dominated Jess is removed from her peculiar Pentecostal home and sent off to school.

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.
