Pakistan: Paying for a Holy War
Pakistan has been the chief backer of the Afghan guerrillas in their Holy War against the Soviet army. But what price has Pakistan paid for being a frontline state? Panorama examines how
KGB-trained agents brought terror to Pakistan; how the war has bred a Kalashnikov culture and an epidemic of heroin addiction. And, as Pakistan goes to the polls following the death of President Zia, the programme talks to Benazir Bhutto , his likely successor. From inside Pakistan and Afghanistan, Gavin Hewitt reports on the prospects for peace for the region as the Soviets withdraw.

: Film 88

Barry Norman presents his personal review of the week's cinema releases. Switching
Channels - Kathleen Turner , Christopher Reeve and Burt Reynolds star in a remake of The Front Page. The action is transferred from the old world of smoke-filled newspaper offices to the gleaming modern setting of a satellite TV news station.
It is notoriously difficult to start a career in the film industry. Stories of nepotism, limited training opportunities and fierce competition for what is seen as a glamorous job, could put off the most determined aspiring film-maker. Film 88 investigates.

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.
