: Farrell in Pursuit of ...

For many of us the idea of becoming famous is extremely attractive. After all, fame usually brings wealth and often power, too. In the second of three programmes, Nigel Farrell meets the octogenarian who believes it's never too late to make it big in showbiz; the frustrated inventors whose brilliant ideas should have made them household names; and the villagers who find an unusual fame in the cricketing almanacs by taking to the hallowed turf of Lord's.

: Eye to Eye

Six documentaries by black film-makers.
Breaking the Mould Carol Straker is a professional dancer who is on the way up. But becoming accepted by the conservative world of British dance has not been easy.
This film follows the making of the first production from Carol's own multi-cultural dance company. It also explores the attitudes of the establishment in Britain towards black dancers, compared to the very different situation in the United States.
With contributors from
Sadler's Wells Ballet, the Royal Ballet and the Dance
Theatre of Harlem, Breaking the Mould provides an inside view of the world of contemporary dance and assesses how young black dancers might change it in the future.

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.
