: Tales of India

Last in a Yesterday's Witness series of six programmes about British life in India in the 20s and 30s.
Fighting Terrorists
In Bengal, the British Raj's most troubled province, two groups of terrorists were convinced that political assassination and indiscriminate bombing attacks were the only certain way to ring down the curtain on British India. Eventually the authorities got the measure of the revolutionaries, but not before policemen and civil servants had been murdered and life in the province regularly disrupted.

' The lawyers and magistrates bargain over your future and you've got no say in the matter,' says ex-offender Tommo. If you get taken to court will you know how to cope with the system? And if you get sentenced to a ' short sharp shock' will you come out feeling reformed as well as punished?
' All I ever learned was how to march,' says ex-SSS man James. Join 16 Up in Leeds for a look at crime and punishment with barrister Helena Kennedy and Bradford ranter Seething Wells.

: A Very British Inventor

Ever since the hovercraft first flew in 1959, it has been a symbol of British ingenuity. But for the hovercraft's inventor, Sir Christopher Ceckerell, it represents just one chapter in a distinguished engineering career, that's ranged from vitally important work on radio during the war to his current involvement with helping to develop a totally new source of energy.
Nigel Farrell met Sir Christopher at his home in Hythe, near Southampton.

: Year of the French

A calendar of French life in 12 film portraits
Madamoiselle Chabert is the only woman president of a wine cooperative in France. She is 83 years old and is loved and feared throughout the French wine trade. September is the busiest and most nerve-racking month of her year - the time of the grape harvest. This year it's an exceptional one. In her own vineyard the grape-picking is in full swing. In the narrow streets of the village of Fleurie truck-loads of grapes cause traffic jams. Mile Chabert keeps a sharp eye on everything that is going on. Wine and food are her passions. She pays no attention to her doctor's warnings and sticks firmly to a rich diet. She has never had the time to get married but she isn't lonely. Three generations of nephews and nieces surround her in the house where she was born and where she will die. Narrator MICHAEL DEAN

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.
