: The Long Wait of the Dragon

A Chinese Journey by Ron Pickering
Shortly after the Communists came to power in 1949, China was excluded from the world's single most important sporting event: the Olympic Games - that is, until this April, when the People's Republic were once again invited back into the Olympic movement. During her time of exclusion, what has happened to China's sport and physical culture? Recently sportswriter and commentator RON PICKERING went to find out. His travels carried him from Wuhan, where 6,000 young people take part in a mass swim of the Yangtze river, to Peking's Summer Palace, where an old librarian explains the philosophical subtleties of ' shadow boxing '. His journey ends in Thailand at the Asian Games, where he asks whether China's policy of ' friendship first, competition second' still holds good, or is this country now going to be as keen as anyone to win as many gold medals as she can?

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.
