: Summer of 76: Carnival

Reporter Jack Pizzey
'Rampage at the Carnival'... 'Battle at Notting Hill'... Headlines that told how everything had gone disastrously wrong. How did people who had worked for weeks making fantastic costumes and practising music for a carnival they hoped would be 'a little piece of heaven in the streets' suddenly find themselves caught in a battle between police and stone-throwing mobs? There are no simple answers, of course, but this film goes back to the beginning and follows the would-be revellers; the police; and the key men behind the carnival, as they make the plans that ended with bricks, truncheons and chaos.

'Carnival isn't just a chance to have a happy time, drink a lot of rum, fall down and forget. It's a time when our kids can identify with something that is ours.' As expressed by one of the organisers, that was the hope of Carnival 76. But it all went disastrously wrong. Summer of 76 tells the story of the Notting Hill' Carnival:' 10.15 pm

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
