The documentary series following the stories of African-American migrants and theirfamilies overthree generations.
We Stand at the Crossroads. This third programme tells the story of black
Chicago between the end of the war and the early sixties. With thousands of migrants still pouring in from the South every day, the cultural life and the politics of the USA's second city were being changed dramatically and for ever. It was a time when the South Side ghetto emerged, when Mayor Daley built a gigantic housing project and when white mob violence was routinely used to seal the racial boundaries of this expanding city. But across Chicago - and the US - a new, urban black militancy began to emerge.

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.
