: Tales of India

A Yesterday's Witness series of six programmes about British life in India in the 20s and 30s. 3: Soldiers Three
In the 1880s Kipling wrote: ' Single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints.' And 50 years later, it seems, they still didn't. Life in the British Army in India in the 1930s is described in this programme by a fusilier, a drummer and a private. ' What a so-and-so country to come to, I thought. But there we are, we've just got to make the best of it.' They saw action on the Frontier, helped quell riots, went out in the midday sun ... But most of the time was spent as single men in barricks'-just standing by. And yet: Duty was a word that had a meaning for us. And we had a duty to the King Emperor: to keep the peace and to set an example.'

: Open Door

The programme in which the BBC hands over air-time to the public.

Tonight Shac presents: Closed Door?
Is Britain's housing crisis well on the way to being solved, as some politicians claim? If so, why has homelessness reached record levels, and why is it so hard to find somewhere to live in Britain's big cities? These are some of the questions behind tonight's programme by Shac. Shac (The London Housing Aid Centre) advises and helps homeless and badly housed Londoners. The practical experience of this work has given Shac a unique insight into the housing crisis and what needs to be done if it is to be solved.

Made by the London Housing Aid Centre with the help of the Community Programme Unit.
(Repeated next Saturday evening)

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
