6: The Reef at Night
During their six months' stay in the Islands of Comoro in the Indian Ocean ROLAND VON HENTIG and his film team made many dives at night. The apparent lifeless nature of the reef at night is an illusion: many creatures not seen during the day are active in the darkness. It's a good time to see squid and octopus. And what happens to fish at night?

Deep South, Deep North - Twenty Years On
Twenty years ago this week, on 17 May 1954, the first shot was fired in the American blacks' war for civil rights, not on the riot-torn street of some northern city but in the United States Supreme Court. In what has become known simply as the Brown Case, Chief Justice Earl Warren ruled that segregation was unconstitutional. It was a shattering blow to the Deep South, leading directly to the freedom riders, murder, riots and the rise of Martin Luther King.
Now, 20 years later, to the wry delight of many Southerners, the civil rights battle has moved through the scorched ghettoes of the mid-60s race riots to the northern cities in general and Detroit in particular. This summer, the Supreme Court will pass judgment on a case in Detroit that will be as significant in 1974 as Brown was in 1954. JEREMY JAMES has been to Alabama in the Deep South and Detroit in the Deep North to examine the first 20 years of American civil rights and asks-how far have the blacks. really come and how far have they to go?

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.
