: What's My Name? the Muhammad Ali Story

2/2. Former boxer and poet Benjamin Zephaniah explores the extraordinary life and career of Muhammad Ali , from his emergence as a heavyweight boxing champion in 1964, aged 22, to his iconic lighting of the Olympic torch at Atlanta in 1996. This final part looks at how the now-65-year-old Ali managed to regain his title in 1974, when he boxed against George Foreman in the heroic "Rumble in the Jungle". Ali's daughters Maryum and Hana discuss their father's serial womanising, and how he has dealt with his Parkinson's disease, and there's a look at his role as an ambassador for orthodox Islam.
Contributors include boxers George Foreman , Henry Cooper and Ernie Terrell , and sports writers Colin Hart and Alan Hubbard.

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
