Rudyard Kipling first travelled from India to England at the age of 5; he circumnavigated the world in his early 20s, and remained an enthusiastic traveller all his life.
Every place Kipling visited and every person he met could fire his imagination and reappear later in story or verse. Marghanita Laski follows his travels, and explores that world which is brought to life in the writings of Rudyard Kipling. 2: Points from India with Joss Ackland as Rudyard Kipling

Secondary schools are entering one of their greatest periods of change since 1944. At stake is what children should learn, how they should be tested and who sets the standards.

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.
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.
