: Horizon: Are You a Racist?

'Are you a Racist?' and 'Are you a Victim of Racism? were advertisements placed by Horizon in the national and local press last summer.
From hundreds of replies four white racists and four black victims of racism were found who were willing to spend five days in an isolated house in Devon.
They agreed to be filmed as they lived together, cooked together and talked together. They investigated each other's prejudice, probed their fears and showed their pain.
The result is a powerful exploration of one of Britain's major social issues.

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
