For over a century India was run by a commercial firm with head-quarters in the City of London-the East India Company. The Company had its own army and fought epic wars to unify the sub-continent. But in 1857 a large part of this army rose up in the great Mutiny, and the Company was destroyed.

: The Life and Death of the Scharnhorst

Written and presented by Ludovie Kennedy
In December 1943 the most successful warship in the German Navy was sunk, off the North Cape of Norway, by the guns and torpedoes of the British Fleet. So ended a career during which the German battlecruiser had sunk an aircraft carrier, an armed merchant cruiser, two destroyers and well over 100,000 tons of merchant shipping.
Tonight LUDOVIC KENNEDY (whose father commanded HMS Rawalpindi, the first ship sunk by the Scharnhorst) tells the story of the battlecruiser's four years of war. The programme includes participants in both navies and action film shot at the time.
The film is super. SUNDAY TIMES
A dramatic, moving tale. OBSERVER

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.

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.
