: Great Railway Journeys

Karachi to the Khyber Pass
For Mark Tully , the BBC's much respected correspondent on the Indian sub-continent, a 1,000-mile trip on the romantic Khyber Mail from Karachi to the Khyber Pass fulfilled a life's ambition.
Tully's travels bring to an end this series in which well known train lovers undertake memorable journeys. He discovers that in Pakistan, where railways are a legacy of the British Raj and remain the mainstay of the transport system, style is more important than speed. "In an Islamic country nothing is believed to happen without God'shelp," he says. "But Pakistani railwaymen know that even Allah cannot guarantee that their trains will run on time."
Tully takes a detour on a steam-hauled goods train, chugs through the Bolan Pass to Quetta, most Islamic of all
Pakistan's cities, and catches the first train for 11 years to go through the Khyber Pass, closed since the Soviet-Afghan war. Producer Jonathan Stedall

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
