The English Disease
Football has done all it can possibly, humanly do,
BERT MILLICHIP ,
Football Association Chairman Three years ago, after the Heysel disaster, English clubs were banned from European competition. The message was clear: until English football solved its hooligan problem,
Europe's doors would remain firmly closed.
Claiming to have purged the game of its violent minority, the football authorities are now seeking an end to England's isolation. As
Europe's governing body prepares for talks with the British Government, David Taylor examines what has been done to cure the so-called 'English Disease'. Researcher JAMES COHEN Producer STEVE HEWLETT Editor COUN CAMERON BBC North West

: The Nature of Australia

A portrait of an island continent in six episodes narrated by Robyn Williams 4: The Sunburnt Country
Imagine a land where rain might only fall once in 25 years. Over three-quarters of Australia is like that, baked by the sun, scorched by the winds and red as brick. But in the deserts, artesian water is tapped by some plants to sustain life at a low ebb, year in and year out.
But every now and again these arid lands receive a welcome drenching. Ancient river courses flow with water, fish appear that thrive in the desert, frogs emerge, and the ephemeral desert plants transform the landscape into a vivid technicolour. Lake Eyre , normally the largest expanse of salt in the world, fills up and hosts colonies of nesting birds, eager to capitalise on the flush of food before the drought returns once more with its iron grip - as return it will.

The O'Jays in Concert
Last night Behind the Beat brought you a wild mix of fresh and funky black music, but earlier this year they caught the O'Jays in the act at London's Hammersmith
Odeon, demonstrating the art of soul survival.
After a 15-year absence from Britain, they prove they can still perform at a level that leaves younger competitors gasping for air. The O'Jays have now been together for over 30 years and are enjoying a new surge in popularity.

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.
