: The Bollywood Story

Presented by Shashi Kapoor Indian Cinema since 1913
Music! Action! Romance! All are essential ingredients which make Indian cinema the largest fantasy factory in the world: over 800 feature films are made every year. In the first of two documentaries actor Shashi Kapoor looks at how the film industry has developed over the years. The first (silent) feature film,
Rajah Harishchandra , was made by the father of Indian cinema Dada Saheb Phalke in 1913. Then 1931 saw the first
Indian talkie Alam Ara. A seminal work, it contained a host of unforgettable songs. Since then the film musical has been the most popular genre in India. Today, melodrama, pathos and escapism combine to provide the only mass entertainment that even the poorest of India can afford.
Produced and directed by PAUL SEN

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.
