: ONE WORLD Birthrights

First of six films on culture and identity from a variety of black perspectives.
And Still I Rise. Are black women more sensual, less inhibited, more comfortable in their bodies than their white sisters? From the sultry, wild and savage, to the "black mama", to the "native" object of scientific study, the stereotypes still feed western culture today. It's time for black women to reclaim their own sense of self.

SS-3: the Assassination of Reinhard Heydrich
On Wednesday 27 May 1942, two assassins waited for a German staff car to round a hairpin bend in a suburb of Prague. Their target was SS
Obergruppenfiihrer Reinhard Heydrich, the architect of the "final solution". Heydrich was considered the most dangerous man in Nazi Germany after
Hitler himself, and the plot was masterminded in England. Fifty years on, Timewatch examines the planning of the daring operation and the terrible reprisals it provoked. Producers Jan and Krystyna Kaplan Series editor Roy Davies

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.
