: The World About Us: Futebol Brasil

Reinaldo, now 25, has been playing for Brazil since he was 17. He's been called the most intelligent footballer in Brazil, both on and off the pitch. This is a portrait of Reinaldo, of his team Atletico Mineiro and of the good-natured, exuberant fans-among them Eni dos Santos. Eni is a beautiful dark-skinned girl who goes to all of Atletico's matches. Observing the passionate fervour she brings to her support for Reinaldo and his team-mates, one can see how Brazilians have almost made football into a religious cult.

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.
