Waiting at the Gates
Mr Ahmed lives and works here in Britain. His wife, with a young son he has never seen, lives in Pakistan and for two years she has been trying to join her husband, without success. She has every legal right to be with him but, like hundreds of other Pakistani dependants, she must first convince the British immigration officers at Islamabad. And that can take up to four years of uncertainty and suffering.
Tonight, Robert MacNeil reports from Pakistan on those who wait, who regard our official guardians at the gates' as petty, spiteful bureaucrats defying the spirit, if not the letter of our Immigration Laws.

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.
