: Will to Win

Amin Ali wouldn't take no for an answer. A teenage immigrant from Bangladesh, he hadn't a penny to his name but he wanted to open his own small restaurant. He worked as an underpaid waiter - to learn the trade. But when the time came no bank would give him the necessary security.
But he stuck to his ambition to do something new for Indian cuisine, and the breaks came. Or was it plain persistence? In just five years he's opened four restaurants. And none of them is small. Presented by Harold Williamson Film editor DAVID LEE
Producer JENNY CROPPER (R)

: Cry Hungary

A Revolution Remembered
Narrated by Michael Bryant Thirty years ago this week the Hungarians rose against communist oppression and the Soviet occupation of their country. For five days an untrained army of students and workers fought the Red Army for control of the streets of Budapest and the right to choose their own way of life.
Cry Hungary is the story of the revolution told by some of those who took part, among them:
Danny Benedikti , now a taxi driver from Oldham, then a 16-year-old apprentice with a machine gun;
Lucy Szalay , now in the USA, then a schoolgirl who was shot by the Secret Police;
Stephen Vizinczey , writer, then a student organiser;
Greg Pongratz , now a farmer in Arizona, then the Commander of the Corvin group whose young army inflicted such damage on the Russians it became a legend. They and others remember their revolution and salute the friends who were among the 20,000 who died.

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.
