Latin Nights
"There were people there, they'd got this tan on their face. I thought, hold on a bit, no son of mine's putting make-up on." This was the first reaction of a miner in Bolton when his son and daughter took an interest in Latin ballroom dancing. Now he's as hooked on it as they are: "Get a good result and you think, eh, it's not bad, this caper."
Denise and Maurice Robinson , a factory worker and fork-lift truck driver respectively, are one of two couples followed in tonight's film. The others are
Melanie Walker and Ian Waite , ranked number three in the country. "People say that dancing together is like a marriage. It's not. It's much more intense, they say.
As the film reveals, the price for moving in this glamorous world is counted in hours of relentless practice and never-ending travel. Winningin competition at Blackpool is the pinnacle, and if not, there's always next year.
Director Peter Gordon ; Series editor Paul Watson

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

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.
