: The Fight

4/4. The Closest Thing to Dying. Telling the story of what is considered the greatest fight of all time -the 1975 "Thrilla in Manila" between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights struggle and Black Power politics, it was also a world in which Ali had emerged as an unlikely crusader against the injustices of Vietnam. Frazier, an Olympic hero, had to endure the scorn and derision of his own race fuelled by Ali's slurs. When the two entered the ring, bitterness had become hatred, but had the demands of the audience and the enmity between the fighters gone too far?

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.
