: Mrs Gandhi's India

Anthony Mayer , an experienced observer of the Indian scene, has travelled widely in India with Mrs Gandhi and recorded hours of conversation with her. This film throws new light on the enigmatic Indira Gandhi and conveys her view of the events of the last few months, also the years leading to them, as well as her justification of her declaration of a State of Emergency in India which has raised major questions about the fate of democratic government there and, indeed, throughout the Third World.
Mrs Gandhi , the Prime Minister, claims that overriding social and economic problems demand the restriction of civil freedom. She argues that the press and opposition politicians turned these freedoms into a licence for irresponsible action. But her own actions have focused a storm of controversy on India: an unknown number of people have been imprisoned, censorship of the press and other controls have been introduced, even the rule of law has been threatened. After years of allowing free access, India now inhibits the movement of foreign correspondents, reporters, writers and film-makers.
At the centre of it all-Mrs Gandhi, accused of dictatorship, convinced of her own rightness. This is her view of her country.
This is the first of an occasional series of programmes in which world leaders take a highly personal view of their own societies.

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.
