Day Navigation



by Ian Stephens former editor of The Statesman of Calcutta and Delhi Ian Stephens has spent something like twenty-five years of his life in the East. He was in Pakistan as historian to the Pakistan army at the time of the 1958 revolution, and in this talk he is able to look at the world through Pakistani eyes as well as at Pakistan through the eyes of the West.
He believes that ill-luck and some misconceptions have cast shadows across the image of Pakistan, which tend to obscure her importance in the world today.

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.
