Three Weeks in Calcutta
Second in the series in which documentary tradition is turned on its head when the subjects of the programmes turn the cameras on themselves.

A young Londoner, Lisa Chidell, makes an emotionally draining visit to Calcutta, where she becomes immersed in the struggles of the Marie Stopes family planning agency which is facing an explosion in the number of births.

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
