Early in 1939 the small Indian
State of Aundh adopted a new constitution based upon the principles of ' village democracy ' advocated by Gandhi. Francis
Watson was there to help. Ten years later he recalled in this programme what 1939 meant to him, not only in the midst of this experiment but also in his wanderings while the war-clouds were gathering in the West. Now, twenty-five years later, he has largely re-written the programme from the viewpoint of 1964. Third broadcast

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.
