Here I feel like a newborn baby. I'm going to live a new life, but just now I feel as if 1 am between two societies, between two lives
Sara is 30 and one of
55.000 people who left the Soviet Bloc last year to seek freedom in the West. For most, their country of first asylum is Austria, and their first taste of the new life a state-run refugee camp at Traiskirchen, near Vienna. As they wait for the offer of a permanent home, sometimes crowded 20 to a room, doubts and disappointments creep in. David Henshaw reports from Austria on the growing tide of East European refugees - and the conditions that drive many to risk everything to get across the border. A File on 4 report

: Profile

of Linton Kwesi Johnson The experience of young Blacks in Britain today is given forceful expression in the poetry of Linton Kwesi Johnson. The powerful imagery and compelling rhythm of his verse, often read to the backing of a reggae band, speaks of disenchantment and frustration, but also of hope for the future. Janet Cohen investigates the personality of this poet and musician who clings fiercely to his roots among London s Black community.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
