: Prisoner 46664: Mandela at 90

Michael Buerk celebrates the 90th birthday of inspired revolutionary Nelson Mandela, whose lifelong fight against inequality and injustice included 27 years in prison for his ultimately successful efforts in overthrowing apartheid in his native South Africa. Released in 1990 and retired in 1999 from his post as the country's first democratically elected black president, Mandela more recently has devoted his energies to the problem of HIV/Aids, which each year kills around half a million South Africans. This programme explores his great work and the critical role of music as a means of expression for South Africans and its use in raising awareness of HIV and Aids.
Contributors include Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, the Soweto Gospel Choir and associates of Mandela.

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.

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.
