SMUGGLING ILLICIT DRUGS

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Talk by Russell Pasha
Sir Thomas Russell entered the service of the Egyptian Government in 1902 and rose to the position of Commandant of Police in Cairo, retiring in 1946. In his early years he formed the nucleus of the Sudanese Camel Corps Police to deal with lawlessness in the deserts, and acquired considerable knowledge of the fellahin and of the Arab tribes, their customs and conditions. His experience among them convinced him that the welfare and security of the country was mortally endangered by drugs, and as Director of the Egyptian Central Narcotics Intelligence Bureau he attacked the manufacture and distribution of hashish and heroin.

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.
