Downtown Video
Cameraman, director, interviewer Jon Alpert is the only 'Independent' whose work appears regularly - and unedited - on American network television, on NBC's prestigious Today programme.
The unique quality of his reporting, whether it's on squatters in Philadelphia, or guerrillas in El Salvador, comes from a technique he learnt on the streets of his local community in New York where he and his wife Keiko Tsuno have run Downtown Community Television since 1972.
They hold free classes for anyone interested in using video as a community resource, and lend equipment to their ' graduates ' who include tenants' associations, trade unions pressure groups of all kinds and high school students, and whose tapes are shown on the streets, in meeting-halls, in private homes, in schools and on local cable television.

: Travellers in Time

Six films of early exploration Introduced by Duncan Carse 1: Storm Cape Horn (1929)
' Now we are off for great sailing adventures aboard the enormous four-masted barque, the Peking, the largest sailing ship in the world ...' So, in 1929, a young American yachtsman and sailor, Irving Johnson , started his story of an epic 11,000-mile voyage from Hamburg to Chile - via Cape Horn. First, in the North Sea, they encountered a savage winter gale that wrecked 68 ships; then in the doldrums 13-foot jellyfish drifted by ... ' and the turkey got sick so we ate him quick before he died.' Finally, off the Horn came the storm; winds over 100 miles an hour; waves 80 feet high; the decks almost completely under water and endlessly swept by great seas ... Johnson wrote: ' No other pictures have ever been taken under these circumstances, nor ever will be now; and I was there with my camera; how lucky can you be?

Health Care: Your Money or Your Life
A documentary by Jon Alpert and Kelko Tsuno for New York's Downtown Community Television Centre. A heart-attack victim is rushed into the emergency room with no pulse. Miraculously, the doctors bring him back to life, but two days later he is dead. Budgets, cut-backs, broken equipment and lack of supplies delayed the surgery that could have saved his life. The programme follows patients in two New York hospitals - one public, one private - to illustrate the vast differences in health care the two systems offer. At a time when our own National Health Service is under increasing threat this chilling picture of what happens in America raises disturbing questions about what could happen here.

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.
