: Louis Malle's India: Part 4: Shadow Without Substance

Drifting at random through the numberless villages of the South, Louis Malle finds himself in a timeless, fantastic, and to a western eye, almost surrealist world. Kerala is like a dream, with its exotic lagoons, game reserves and palm-fringed beaches - a species of tropical Paradise Lost. At the same time it's a battleground for the conflicting forces of Capitalism and Maoism, a land where even the Communists are split into three separate parties, and democracy and collectivism wrestle with the traditions of a country that by nature rejects them both.


Narrated and directed by: Louis Malle
Presented by: Colin Luke

: Christians at War: Two Families in Belfast

On the day of the traditional Protestant Apprentice Boys' March - the people of Northern Ireland hold their breath. The tensions of this country which has now lived in a state of virtual Civil War for the last 12 months press most closely on those who live in the embattled Protestant and Catholic areas.
Jim Douglas Henry and a film crew lived for ten days with the Catholic [text removed] their six children, their friends and neighbours in [text removed]. Harold Williamson and another crew lived, across the barbed wire, with the Protestant [text removed]and their two daughters, friends and neighbours in [text removed].
The [text removed] and the [text removed] are not normally militant or filled with hatred. But while politicians talk and the army patrol, these two families are living with the situation, occasionally in hope-but mostly in despair

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
