A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives
Smuggled out of South Africa, 'The End of the Dialogue' is a powerful documentary shot by five black members of the Pan Africanist Congress. They, and the people taking part, risked their lives and liberty, for under South African laws they could have been arrested and charged under the 'Sabotage' or 'Terrorism' Acts.
Commentators and businessmen go to South Africa, return and tell us about apartheid, but rarely are we told how it feels to be black in South Africa. We all know about apartheid: 19 per cent white population ruling 81 per cent black. Cold statistics like: South Africa is responsible for nearly 50 per cent of the total number of executions in the world; and South Africa's daily prison population 1968/69-whites 3,000, Africans and others 78,000. Cold statistics - until you see this film.

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.
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.
