: 40 Minutes

Our lives - now. Girls Apart
Sisca and Sylvia are both 16, schoolgirls living only a few miles from each other, but they have never met. Each comes from a family which is thought politically moderate and reasonably well-off. They are South Africans. Sisca is white, Sylvia is black. Each girl introduces the South
Africa she knows - her home, family, and way of life. Sisca, in Johannesburg, says apartheid no longer exists. Sylvia, in Soweto, has been arrested and tortured by the police. Violence is never far away. Sisca is confident that the authorities will go on making the right decisions. Sylvia, at the emotional funeral of a school-friend killed by vigilantes, sees a more disturbing future.

The hour may be later, but one of America's brightest young comedians is back in the sitcom with a difference...
Starring Garry Shandling
It sounds like a great idea for your mother's birthday: get your friends together, hide them behind the furniture, darken the room and when the lady of the moment arrives... hit those lights and shout 'Surprise!'
But this is Garry Shandling, for whom things have a habit of going wrong...

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.
