: The Strange Affair of ...

The Doomsday Prophecies Investigated by Robert Symes
The end of the world shall come
In nineteen hundred and ninety-one.
So runs the final prophecy of Yorkshire wise-woman
Mother Shipton. Her fellow seer, St Malachi, puts
Doomsday as close as the reign of the next Pope but one. Nostradamus specifically says July 1999.
Could the prophets be right? That the final catastrophe will be before the year AD 2000?
And most terrifying of all, how accurate is the Nostradamus expert who reports that the end of the world will be on 6 February ... two days from now ... Thursday?

Go-Go in Washington DC The home of the White
House, the Pentagon and the President is also the home of the most exciting soul scene of the 1980s. The raw power of the go-go beat has emerged within a stones-throw of America's palaces of power.
Washington DC is 70 per cent black and go-go is more than just a musical trend - it is the lifestyle of Washington's black youth.
In tonight's Arena, eminent go-go saxophonist Carl 'Low Budget' Jones, of the band
Redds and the Boys, takes a journey around Washington city introducing its musicians and their place within the history of American soul music.
Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers, Trouble Funk, Experience Unlimited and The Class Band are the featured acts as Arena goes to the heart of Chocolate City. Film editor RAY HOUGH Producers NIGEL FINCH and ANTHONY WALL Director DON COUTTS

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
