: WHO WOULD TRUE VALOUR SEE ...

Joe Clark is a Quaker who in 1958 gave up his job in Hong Kong to return to Britain for training as an artificial limb maker. After some further years in Hong Kong, he was asked to go to Vietnam: and in July last year he set up an amputee centre at Quang Ngai, a town that has been and is the scene of heavy fighting.
On a visit to Hong Kong in May, Joe Clark was interviewed by PATRICIA PENN
Extended version of the broadcast on July 5

: INDIAN DEMOCRACY?

† by KRISHNAN KUMAR
Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Kent
Mr. Kumar considers the claim by many Indian and Western observers that India is the world's largest democracy. How correct is this as a description of Indian politics, and how relevant is the Indian political system for solving their present economic and linguistic problems?

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.
