: The Hippy Trail

Scottish-born writer and broadcaster Hardeep Singh
- Kohli recalls an age when hippies journeyed east in search of mystical and liberating experiences. Via an inexpensive but long and arduous trek across North Africa, the Middle East, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, inspired youth of the 60s and 70s made their way to the ultimate non-California hippy destination - India - for cheap (or free) living, beautiful landscapes, sex, drugs and enlightenment. Kohli searches for the elusive remnants of this pothead generation that travelled a hippy trail that is now out of bounds. Featuring music that veers from familiar 60s sounds to the more recent trance of Goa. Producer David Morley

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
