: * Greener on the Other Side?

While the west worries about global warming, India faces an immediate environmental crisis that threatens many millions of Indians whose livelihoods depend on the land. The country's forests, farmlands, air and water are deteriorating rapidly. Industrial development and over-exploitation are taking a heavy toll. Until recently, India tried to escape the twin traps of poverty and underdevelopment through a policy of 'big is beautiful'. Massive industrial and hydro-electrical projects were seen as the path to economic salvation. But India today has a legacy of polluted water, degraded farmland and disappearing forests. The dilemma facing the country is stark: how can India develop without destroying its natural resources? Can its future be greener as well as richer? Narrated by Roshan Seth. Producer Charles Bruce

Jeanne runs a small hotel-restaurant in a country town. She is bullied by her mother and bored by her husband. Into this mundane world comes the new landlord of the property, a man used to having his own way. Suddenly Jeanne is torn between her wifely loyalties and a new lover. The solution is as outrageous as it is practical. This was the first major full-length feature from actress-turned-director Magali Clement. A French film with English subtitles.

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.
