AFRICAN MEDICINE
In many parts of Africa babies still die young. They have no proper funeral-just burial. Why do so many die? This summer Horizon went to Nigeria, and the remote islands of Lake Chad; there the team lived with the missionaries and doctors who are bringing modern medicine to the villages and leprosy settlements.
A poor diet, lack of sanitation, and most of all ignorance-these are near impossible conditions for successful treatment. African Medicine looks at the methods being used to cure and educate-and at the dedicated people who are taking medicine to Africa.

: THE MONEY PROGRAMME

looks at
GREEN POWER IN THE GHETTO
Introduced by Brian Widlake , Graham Turner with William Davis. John Tusa
Associate producer, Udi Eichler Produced by MICHAEL BUNCE
In pre-election America racial violence is a frightening reality. For the last three or four years the concept of Black Power has gathered momentum and found political expression through such organised militant groups as the Black Panthers.
Complementing, and to a certain extent replacing, the concept of Black Power is the new force of Green Power-the realisation that the gift of money-making is not the white man's prerogative; that entrepreneurship can also be acquired by a black man. Gradually the ghettos, like New York's Harlem, are establishing black banks, black businesses, and black business consultants. If you can' beat them, join them-and win. For a growing number of black Americans Green Power-the power of the dollar-is the new way to equality.

Canadian-born Oscar Peterson has become the most prolific, brilliant, and highly professional jazz pianist of his era.

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.
