Soko Risina Musoro by H. W. CHITEPO
Translated from the Shona and introduced by HAZEL CARTER Adapted for broadcasting and produced by TERENCE TILLER
Shona is an African language of the Bantu group. This epic-dramatic poem, recently composed, is the first of its kind in that language. Ostensibly, it contrasts with a former time of prosperity, a village's later experience of drought and famine, which results in the meeting of a general council at the court of the King. But deeper meanings may also be apparent. with Diana Olsson , Chrisopher Carlos Frank Duncan , Deryck Guyler
Godfrey Kenton , Philip Leaver Will Leighton , Philip Madoc and Eric Phillips

The Europeans in Algeria
Can the 1,000,000 French-speaking Europeans be given, and will they accept, effective guarantees under which they could live in an independent Algeria? Some of the difficulties involved in attempts to answer those questions are discussed in this conversation between two journalists who have spent much time in Algeria, HENRI DE TURENNE of France-Soir and PETER RALEIGH of the BBC.
Their discussion is introduced by JAMES JOLL , Fellow of St. Antony's College, Oxford, who places the problem in its historical perspective.

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.
