: Michael Moore's TV Nation

When it was announced that this series would be broadcast on BBCtv,
Michael Moore said he hoped it would lead to " a lot of free plane tickets to Commonwealth countries and a chance to meet the Queen and pound back a few brewskies."
Perhaps he's still dreaming, but he and his team have certainly done a lot of travelling over the past six weeks. From Kuwait to Texas and from Hot Springs to Foleshill, the series has explained and exposed stories of global interest in an off beat and often ironic way.
In this the last programme of the series he investigates caningand the British fascination with it. Among those he talks to are headmasters, and politicians who'd like to beat some sense into British youth. Executive producer Jeremy Gibson

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.
