This week: Profile:
Major Dudley Gardiner , MBE
For 16 years MAJOR GARDINER has been running a soup kitchen in one of the poorest parts of Calcutta. With support from charities in England, Australia and Calcutta he feeds 6,000 people every day.
The hungry and the starving who can come to his kitchen are given a midday meal. For those living further away, Major Gardiner sets out every afternoon on a 35-mile drive round the city giving food to the most needy.
Harold Williamson went to Calcutta to talk to Major Gardiner about his work and ask him why he chose to dedicate his life to feeding the starving: in 16 years he has never missed a day - they even had to pin the MBE on him in his kitchen.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
