Asian Magazine was a weekly news magazine aimed at the Asian community. It replaced Apna Hi Ghar Samajhiye which had been on air since 1968. Broadcast on BBC1 on Sunday mornings at 10am, the programme ran for five years from 20 April 1982[1] until 26 April 1987.[2]. It was replaced in July 1987 by a new programme, Network East.[3]

Throughout its time on air, a midweek companion programme Gharbar was also broadcast and was aimed at Asian women. Gharbar ended two days after the final episode of Asian Magazine was transmitted.
