EPISODE 19:Set Europe Ablaze
In Yugoslavia and in Czechoslovakia the Nazis carried out fierce reprisals against the people because of the work of the underground armies; after the killing of the S.S. General Heydrich, who had been sent to Prague to crush resistance there, the whole village of Lidice was razed to the ground and its inhabitants shot. One of the most heroic-and tragic-stands made by the Resistance was in Poland, during the Warsaw uprising in 1943. After sixty-three days of the most fierce and bloody fighting, often waged in the sewers beneath the city, the Poles were forced to capitulate to the Germans Repeat

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
