Rugby's role in the new South Africa is the subject for tonight's programme in the series examininganation'sidentity through sport.
Former Springbok skipper
Morne du Plessis began to realise what was happening in his own country when he encountered thousands of anti-tour demonstrators in Australia in 1971, and now admits that "we should have seen what was going on". One who did was
Springbok hero Cheeky Watson. He realised he either had to "live a life as if blacks don't exist, or turn my back on the Springbok blazer". Having chosen to play in the townships he endured ostracism by the rugby establishment, warnings of assassination, threats to his family, arrest, and the need to enter townships hidden in the boot of a car.
While some speak enthusiastically of the results being achieved by the rugby
"development clinics", Watson dismisses them as window-dressing, when wealth and resources are so unfairly apportioned. But the film finds both optimism for the long road ahead, and fears over the possibility of sporting equality in an unequal society. Director David Fox

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.
