Gandhi

2/3. The Rise to Fame. Mishal Husain traces Mahatma Gandhi's transformation from obscure lawyer to father of the Indian nation, discovering a far more complex personality than that portrayed in the multi-Oscar-winning biopic of 1982. After facing unpopularity, political failure and incarceration, Gandhi finally triumphed in 1930 with the launch of the most astute campaign of the age - the 240-mile Salt March that succeeded in humiliating the British Raj. Husain also explores the animosity that many Indian Muslims - including her own family - felt towards Gandhi.

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.
