2/2. Originally labeled "the gay plague" by the tabloid press, Aids (Acquired Immunodeficiency
Syndrome) became known to the British public first in the early-to-mid-1980s, just when the gay community was experiencing an explosive and liberating shift in its increasingly public lifestyle. Presenter
Alan Cumming rewinds to the Thatcher years to recall that era's gay culture, which was characterised by social and sexual advances that were offset by a terrifying number of deaths among gay men and a nasty social backlash in response to what was then a visibly pronounced illness. Featuring interviews with survivors from a generation that suffered heavy lossses. Plus a look at the parts played by the media, the music industry, politicians, religious figures and the gay community itself. Producer Graham Pass

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.
