by RUDYARD KIPLING adapted for radio by A. R. RAWLINSON
Famine is still the scourge of India, as it has been since time immemorial. As a ' cub ' reporter in the days of the Raj, Rudyard Kipling personally experienced Famine Relief work, and in this play he has used his experience to provide the vividly contrasting background to the love-story of Scott and his ' William.' It is a very English love-story, true to its period in the 1890s when Victorian ethics and convention ruled supreme.

: Analysis

Against the Stream A report on South Africa by Ian McIntyre
Ten years have passed since the old Afrikaner dream of a republic was realised - decade marked by high economic growth and by the determination with which the Nationalist Government, despite intense hostility, has pressed ahead with its policy of separate development.
How successful has the ' irreversible experiment of Bantu self-government been? At what cost has it been pursued? And what weight attaches to those questioning voices which in the last few years have been raised within the ruling party?

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.
