Just over a year ago, Faiz Ahmed Faiz recorded at Pebble Mill a 'mushaira'
(poetry symposium), which was his last appearance on television. Soon afterwards he returned to Pakistan where he died in November 1984.
Faiz was probably the greatest Urdu poet of his era, the recipient of many national and international awards and, to mark the anniversary of his death, today's programme is devoted to his work.
There is an edited version of the television 'mushaira' in which he and a few other eminent poets recite their poems.

Charles H. Price , the American

After the Torture
'I think everyone after torture discovers how precious is life. I mean you face things differently.' Every year thousands of torture victims disappear, never to tell their tale. But thousands more survive, and are released back into the world. Their torture does not end at the moment they step outside the prison gates. The memories remain, and with them the anguish that makes readjustment to normal life so hard. Canada has a uniquely liberal policy of immigration for political refugees - over 20,000 settle in the country each year. Many have suffered terrible tortures and made miraculous escapes. To meet their needs an extraordinary network of doctors, psychiatrists, health workers and volunteers, several themselves former victims, has sprung up.
This film does not investigate the politics of the victims. It examines their experiences, and follows the attempts of care-workers, medical and social, to overcome their traumas.

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.
