: THE ASIAN TEENAGERS

Tuesday's Documentary
Their parents - Sikh, Moslem, Hindu-came from Pakistan, India, and the Indian communities of Africa to find a better life in Britain. They were the immigrants. Today their children speak English like natives-natives of Bradford, Southall, Birmingham. They are the first generation. They have grown up in two worlds.
At home their parents live the Indian villager's traditional family life, authoritarian, strict, where the head of the family lays down the law, and everyone's future, including marriage, is ' arranged.' But outside, instead of the fields of India, lies the world of Britain's industrial cities; the world of Powellism and mini-skirts; the world of youthful independence and contempt for authority, of competition and prejudice. How does the Asian teenager in Britain reconcile the conflicting demands of these two worlds?

The Buildings of England - a series of books that, county by county, describe every major building in this country. Now almost complete, this enormous undertaking, which has been twenty-five years in the writing, is the work of one man ...

Born in Leipzig, he is now the world's greatest authority on English architecture and this film is the first to show him at work, travelling, talking, writing, and, above all, illustrating the buildings to which he is dedicated.

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.
