This week: Mixed Marriage: 2: But what about the children...?
When a racially mixed couple - black and white - decide to marry it is a brave decision, frequently one made in the face of prejudice and bigotry.
White girls married to coloured men or coloured girls with white husbands must find their own answers to the many extra problems that are bound to beset their marriages. But frequently the main consequence and burden of their decision to marry is one that concerns their children. For the children: neither one world nor the other, in a society in which there exists violent race prejudice. How can the parents protect them? What special armour do they need to face the life ahead?

: World Cinema: The Hop-Pickers (Starci Na Chmalu)

A Czech film with English sub-titles.
Starring Vladimir Pucholt, I. Pavlova

In a pretty setting of hop fields beside the river Elbe in the late summer two hop-picking students, Filip and Hanka, fall in love, and the mean efforts of Honza to break them up only brings them closer together. The film's chief inspiration was West Side Story, but scriptwriter Vratislav Blazek says, 'Our film is not an imitation in any way. We tried to make a genuine Czech musical'.

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
