: Americans

by DESMOND WILCOX
The characters we know from fiction who still live on today. Thirteen programmes which look at figures in an American landscape. 12: The Immigrant
Leon Stein is a New Yorker. He is also a Trade Union leader, an editor, an author-and a Jew. His parents were immigrants to America and came through Ellis Island at the turn of the century. LEON STEIN works in the rag trade. At 17 he went into a sweatshop as his mother and father had before him. He learned his trade as a fabric cutter before he became a full-time organiser for the International Ladies Garment Workers Union and Editor of the union newspaper, Justice.
At 65 Leon Stein still feels the powerful pull of his immigrant origins. With the union, he welcomes new immigrants - although these days they are more likely to be Chinese or South American than European. The Trade Union and the rag trade, he claims, are the great Americanisers.

The programme in which the BBC hands over air time to the public. Tonight:
The People of Glasgow's East End present
Every Town has an East End
' Press and television coverage of our area shows it as being full of alcoholics, vandals and criminals - no mention of a community. Sure we've got problems, but our area is going through massive changes, and we want a say in those changes. Our aims are basic, like the shops, open spaces, doctors and amenities that most people take for granted. We do have a community, and we want to tell you about it.'
Made by the people of Glasgow's East End with the help of the Community Programme Unit

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.
