: Times Remembered

They have treasured memories of other times - firm views about present times.
In the race for today few of us spare enough time to listen-even to learn - from people who also know about yesterday, as they talk to the Man Alive reporters.
MARGARET MORRIS is 79. Her name, like Isadora Duncan 's, is synonymous with dance innovation. A life-long vegetarian, she behaves, in her own words, as if she were 25. She talks of her youth but also of the here and now.

: Man Alive

Reporters JIM douglas HENRY
This week : The Forgotten People There are today thousands of British citizens who are separated from their wives and families, refused permission to work and refused admission to Britain. They hold British passports and may be forgiven for asking What are they worth? ' Those Asians in East Africa who chose to become British citizens understandably now call themselves 'the forgotten people.' The East African governments tell them they are not wanted - despite having lived there most of their lives. Both Labour and Conservative immigration policies have denied them automatic right of entry to Britain - despite passports which once guaranteed exactly that.
The East African governments say it's not their responsibility; the British government says it has the situation under review. Tonight Man Alive looks at the Plight of these British citizens and discusses some of the points the government's latest review will have to consider.

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.
