: 40 Minutes: Struggle for Stonebridge

Narrated by Linton Kwesi Johnson

On the massive high-rise estate of Stonebridge, four in five residents are black. Crime, unemployment and despair prevail in a place ripe for riot. But so far the riots have not happened.

A group of local youths, led by Leonard Johnson, bought an enormous disused bus garage, hoping to turn it into the biggest community centre in Europe. They were inspired by the black American Ted Watkins, who rebuilt riot-torn Watts, Los Angeles. From the beginning, things went wrong. The architect was dismissed;
£50,000 disappeared from the funds; the relationship with Brent Council grew strained. Now the centre is nearly complete.

Has it all been an exercise in paper participation? Will it stop the fire next time?

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
