First Round - Midlands and East Anglia. Paul Overall (production manager); Pat Parkin-Moore (state registered nurse); Steve Williams (computer analyst programmer); Tony Garton (local government officer).
The coronation of Ronald Mutebi in Uganda last July restored the 600-year-old kingdom of Buganda after an interval of 27 years. As more and more Africans become disillusioned with the lack of political, social and economic gain from the modern state, the resurgence of loyalty to the tribal order is spreading. How can this reverence for tradition be reconciled with the demands of the late
20th century? Ugandan journalist Joel Kibazo talks to traditional leaders around the continent and asks them how they see their role.
Producer Mohini Patel
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.
