: Naipaul on India

India is for me a difficult country. It isn't my home and cannot be my home; and yet I cannot reject it or be indifferent to it; I cannot travel only for the sights.
In 1962 the novelist V. S. Nat paul paid his first visit to India, the country from which his grandfather had emigrated to Trinidad in the 19th century. The result was his widely acclaimed An Area of Darkness. This week sees the publication of his latest book India: A Wounded Civilisation, the product of a more recent visit, and he talks about it with CHARLES WHEELER.

: Scientifically Speaking

Introduced by John Maddox
In 1942 J. Robert Oppenheimer was given charge of ' Project Y ', the building of a laboratory at the Los Alamos Ranch School in New Mexico. Many of the world's leading scientists went to work there, and their first product was ' Trinity ' - the Atomic Bomb. John Maddox visited Los Alamos recently and talked with some of the veterans of ' Project Y ' about the laboratory's invention of the atomic and hydrogen bombs, and its current research - some of it peaceful, some looking towards the next generation of nuclear weapons.

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

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.
