Ten films about development issues in India
1: Call your Centre People for Help
' We felt that if you went into a village and you found that everyone was for your project, the rich and the poor. the exploiter and the exploited, then there was something wrong with the project.' The Centre is in the village of Tilonia in Rajasthan, headquarters of one of the most successful experiments in rural development in India. By concentrating its projects on the poorest, most exploited members of society, especially women, Tilonia has managed to change their lives for the better. But it's also encouraged such people to see that they can change the society in which they live. The film looks at the effect which Tilonia has had on their lives-on the Reser leather war. kers, on the landless Bagrias, on women like Mangi and Naurti.

: The Waiting War

written by MAGGIE WADEY
Anne, Karen and Judy have a common bond-their husbands are aboard HMS Sheffield, heading for the Falklands. Though their daily routine with children and home continues as normal, inevitably, as the crisis worsens so too do their innermost fears. When the unthinkable happens and Sheffield is hit, the ordeal back home, waiting for news, is one no one predicted.

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.
