India's Satellite TV
' Pictures from heaven ' is how the inhabitants of 2,400 Indian villages describe the new arrival amongst them: television. Most of the villagers have never seen a film and now every evening they gather around a community set to watch a programme of information and entertainment carefully planned to bring them into line with the 20th century. In a unique experiment India is using a satellite to beam down instructional and educational television to some of the most backward parts of the country. The scheme, which began last
August and will continue for a year, has attracted a lot of attention as well as some criticism. Frank Gillard presents a report on its progress.

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.
