This week: Bombay Superstar
Nothing succeeds like excess in the Indian film industry. In Bombay, Hollywood of the East, a new, noisy, colourful feature film is churned out every three days. Heroic heroes battle furiously with villainous villains - everything is larger than life, including Rajesh Khanna , Bombay's superstar.
JACK PIZZEY and a Man Alive film team watched Rajesh dancing through love scenes beneath the Himalayan snows, plotting his way through the intrigues of the Bombay film world, and at home with his 15-year-old wife: when he married in March millions of Indian girls were heart-broken.

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.
