Riots Next Year?
Ebony returns with a special report from Juliet Alexander in Handsworth.
Three months after the series of riots which began in Birmingham and spread rapidly to other cities, the political and social costs are still being counted.
In the Handsworth area alone •unemployment is four times the national average
•nine out of ten leave school without a job
020 per cent of the area is officially 'extremely deprived'. Ebony talks to the people of Handsworth about the reality behind the statistics and challenges the record of the city fathers and community leaders in the face of such urgent problems.
If the September riots have no effect, there are many who believe the only solution will be more riots, and this time the cost may well be even higher. Researchers

Jeremy Cherfas looks at penguins on ice beneath the Californian sun, and gorillas and orang-utans swinging in the steamy heat of Chicago's Tropic World in the depths of winter.
Vending machines for lizards and showers for pigs are just some of the technological tricks that zoos have devised to provide animals with something to do and the visitors something to watch. Producer GEORGE INGER BBC Bristol

: Now the War is Over

The last of a series of films about Britain from 1945 to 1951.
Memorial to the Future
The 1951 Festival of Britain is planned as a reward for austerity. As more and more people complain about regulations and rationing, the government hopes this national celebration will cheer up the nation.
'To me, it was an exciting event. I always thought of it as a memorial to the future. There was a whole lot of past one should turn one's back on and there was the beginning of something new.'
(BRIAN ALDISS)
The Festival brings the first glimpse of the new consumer age with TV sets on the never-never and red washing-up bowls.
With eight million visitors the Festival is a hit, but the last year of the Labour government is one of crises ... a dock strike, the Korean War, Cabinet resignations. A new-look Conservative
Party promising to 'set the people free' is waiting in the wings.

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.
