: The World About Us

The Boat People -Happy Landfall? Five years ago Harold Williamson reported the plight of the Vietnamese
Boat People on a barren island in the South China Sea where 40,000 of them asked the world for mercy.
In this new film he sets out to discover what happened to some of those refugees, traced through a worldwide network of Vietnamese contacts - in New Orleans Tampa, Brussels and London.
All with different stories to tell of how they fared on alien shores, of what happened when their dream of freedom and hope of prosperity were put to the test. In Britain more than 80 per cent of the 16,000 Vietnamese are without work after a settlement policy of dispersal left them isolated and lonely. Did we do our best?

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.
