: One Pair of Eyes Return as a Stranger

... is how Dom Moraes , poet and author, sums up a year's visit to India in this series of highly personal films.
At the age of 16 he left India to make his home in England. At 20 he won the Hawthornden Prize for poetry while still at Oxford. After spending half a lifetime in this country he had come to think of himself as an English-man-until the campaign against coloured immigrants flared.
Feeling that he had been denied the right to roots in Britain, Moraes returned to India. In tonight's film he shows what it is like to be a stranger in the land of one's birth.

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.
