: Tao

The Way and its Power
To the Chinese, Taoism has been the basis of practically all art, thought and worship - a way of life for more than 2,000 years arising from their perception of man's relationship to the Universe. Its contemporary relevance is manifested in such diverse activities as calligraphy, music, acupuncture and the martial arts. Illustrated also are time-honoured ceremonies of the Ghost Festival, a midnight 'Automatic writing' ritual and paintings, jades and ceramics from the museums of many countries.

: The Man Alive Report

The Fix: The hidden story behind drug abuse in Britain.
Nick Ross investigates drug addiction. There was a time when drug abuse was big news: back in the 60s LSD, purple hearts and heroin advanced like a tide in Britain. Ten years ago this month the government responded: addicts were made to register, while the police, the courts and Customs clamped down on illegal trafficking. The tide was turned. Or so it seemed. This film inquiry now reveals a new and even more alarming threat, one that affects the old as well as the young. The Fix shows how people in Britain are falling prey to highly addictive medicines.


Presenter: Nick Ross
Producer: Tom Conway
Editor: Tim Slessor

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.
