Black Girls in Search of God
George Bernard Shaw 's Black Girl searched for God in vain. The four black girls in tonight's programme came to this country bringing their own religions with them. To many people in this country the beliefs and practices of these girls appear foreign and inexplicable. The effect on the girls is to produce in their own lives a conflict of loyalties. The more they keep up with their English friends the further they move from their parents.
PREBHSHARAN is a Sikh. She lives in the close-knit Sikh community at Southall-but also, through school, the teenage world of music, and mini-skirts.
VIJAY is Hindu, a career girl who works in community relations. Her job is to mix with people of all races and religions, but she still expects to marry a good Hindu, of the right family and the right caste.
REHANA is Muslim. Muslim women traditionally are kept in purdah. But Rehana runs, in Coventry, a club designed to bring Asian girls out of the confines of their homes. ELAINE lives in Smethwick. She is a Jamaican, but racial problems hardly touch her life. She is a Pentecostal Christian, and her time is fully occupied praying, and singing, and evangelising door-to-door.
All four girls, and many thousands like them in this country, are deciding what to accept and what to reject in our society - and working out their own morality.

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.
