The Place in the Sun: 4: Namibia - Apartheid's Last Shield

A five part series.
South Africa took control of Namibia in 1920 under a League of Nations' mandate, and despite United Nations' demands for them to withdraw, and a similar ruling by the International Court, they still maintain their presence with an army of occupation that is bigger than ever. It is trying to hold back the efforts of the South West African People's Organisation to take over a country which South Africans regard as the last buffer against what they see as the onslaught of Communism and the evil of Black majority rule. There's talk of cease-fire this year and elections in 1983, but the reality of the situation depends on events in Pretoria and the South African Prime Minister's struggle to maintain dominance over his right wing.

A Boom in Bloomsbury

A small group of literary folk and their artistic friends who. during the earlier part of this century met regularly in each other's houses and when parted, however fteeHngly. wrote to each other, has retained a curiously strong hold on the imagination of the culturally inclined. A flourishing industry has grown up around their memory. Books by them have been far outnumbered by books about them, but they are celebrated, it might be supposed, as much for their style of living as for their creative skills. What is the allure of the Bloomsbury Group? Is their literary, artistic and historical significance overrated? Is the glamour of their social life a myth? Frances Donnelly asks the questions and the answers are supplied by Quentin Bell.

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.
