: Rights and Reactions

Actor Ian McKellen introduces an important documentary on gay rights, on the tenth anniversary of the birth of the Gay Liberation
Movement after the Stonewall riots in New York.
In 1986, the city of New York passed a gay rights bill, and mayor Edward Koch predicted that the sky would not fall. But the hearings and demonstrations that led up to this event became a focus for the inflammatory subject of the rights of lesbians and gay men. This highly praised documentary, which won top awards at the Chicago and San Francisco International Film
Festivals, follows events in the city council chambers and out on the streets to capture the full range of passionately held views, from gay activists to religious fundamentalists. Produced by PHIL ZWICKLER and JANE LIPPMAN
A REALIS PICTURES and SYZYGY

: London Film Festival

The selection from last year's festival continues with a new film from India.
The Voyage Beyond (Antarjali Yatra)
[Bengal in the 1830s. A dying octogenarian is brought to his cremation site on the banks of the Ganges, only for his astrologer to announce that he is destined to enter heaven with a mate. An impoverished fellow-Brammin, offers up his own daughter for marriage and 'suttee' - the burning on the pyre of the widowed bride. However, the proximity of such nubile youthfulness leads to signs of revival in the old man. The conflict between outlawed convention and irrepressible human desires is observed with compassion and wry humour, highlighted by sensitive camerawork.
Screenplay by GOUTAM GHOSE from a story by KAMAL KUMAR MAJUMDAR. Produced by RAVI MALIK and DEBASHISH MAJUMDAR
Directed by GOUTAM GHOSE
(Bengali/Hindi dialogue with English subtitles. First showing on British television).

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.

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.
