: Raj Kapoor: the Last Moghul

A Network East presentation I dream cinema, I breathe cinema, I live cinema. These are the words of Raj Kapoor who died on 2 June this year. This tribute charts his
40-year career as a producer, director and one of the most popular stars of Indian cinema. Raj Kapoor 's first job was as a clapper boy in the 1930s. By the 1950s he was making his most important films, artistically and commercially, in the decade regarded as the golden age of Indian cinema.
He popularised himself as a Chaplinesque 'down-and-out', and also brought the kiss back to the Indian screen after an absence of over 50 years.

: The Family

The last in a 13-part series The After Years
The Wilkins family have all upped and left home. No more the cut knees and bruised egos, the joys and tears, the arguments that swirled about the crowded home; all is quiet. Scattered to the winds of Reading, the Wilkins brood have started new lives. They've encountered new problems and, for some, new partners. But for Margaret, their mother, life still goes on in the old home; and the film crew is back. In conversation with the programme's producer, Paul Watson , she reflects on the rights and wrongs of the serial; the then and now of life in Britain.


Producer: Paul Watson

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.
