: To be Young, Gifted and Black

A portrait of Lorraine Hansberry in her own words
At 29, LORRAINE HANSBERRY was the youngest American, the first woman and the only black playwright ever to win the Best Play Award from the New York Drama Critics' Circle - with her first play, A Raisin in the Sun, since published in 30 countries and made into an award-winning film. Five years later she died of cancer.
.To be Young, Gifted and Black is a play about Lorraine Hansberry , woven from letters, diaries, notebooks and portions of her plays by ROBERT NEMIROFF , her husband. It begins with a speech she delivered shortly before the opening of her first play:
It moves back and forth in time from earliest childhood in the Chicago ghetto to race riots at Englewood High; to her first encounter with the plays of Sean O'Casey and triumph in New York.
The actors telling the story are: Barbara Barrie , Blythe Danner Ruby Dee ,
Al Freeman Jr Lauren Jones , Claudia McNeil and Roy Scheiber

: Yesterday's Witness

Charlie Smith : aged 131
CHARLIE SMITH is certainly the oldest man ever to tell his story on BBC television; he is probably the oldest man in the Western World. If appears that he was born in Liberia, on the west coast of Africa, in 1842. Then, as a small boy, he was tricked on to a slave ship which took him to America where he started work on a Texas ranch about 120 years ago. He's still active, running a candy-store in Bartow, Florida.
His memories and stories range far and wide: from the New Orleans slave market to Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War, from Jesse James and Billy the Kid to the launch of Apollo II.
Slave ships - space ships - Charlie Smith has seen thje lot.

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.
