BBC Moscow correspondent
Rob Parsons delivers a bleak insight into the harsh lives of the city's street youngsters. In the chaos of post-communist Russia, thousands of Moscow children have turned to crime in a desperate struggle to survive. One 15-year-old Parsons meets has turned to prostitution while a penal colony for teenagers he visits is so grossly underfunded he is asked fora donation. The number of youngsters involved in theft, violence and prostitution is so great that the city's police force is stretched to breaking point. Many of the young people are on the run from their families, half of whom now live below the poverty line. Police trawl Moscow's railway stations for runaways who will be detained briefly before returningto life on the streets.
George Alagiah reports on the last of South Africa's Kalahari bushmen, whose yearningto reclaim theirancient lands is being hampered by the erosion oftheirtraditions by modem influences.

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.
