in Los Angeles ' It's a town like any other town, filled with walking people, filled with the arts, filled with glamour and degradation. It has everything. It is in most ways America in microcosm, but more it is the cutting edge of America. What happens here happens five years before anywhere else in America. We send the style to the rest of the country.'

The South Africans
I The Springtime of Mr Botha
The wind of change has taken a long time to reach South Africa. Mary Goldring reports on its effect upon blacks, who think it has arrived too late, and whites, who are learning to come to terms with it. What the social changes, the upsets, and the new factor of soaring gold prices are doing to their lives, aspirations and jobs is the subject of the first of two programmes.

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.
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.
