The crew of the uss Enterprise take a well-earned rest on the beautiful planet they find after a long period of stress. To see a giant rabbit, however surprising, is no cause for alarm, but a ferocious sword-wielding Samurai warrior is a very different kettle of fish, and their pleasure soon gives way to terror.

: Last Night, Another Soldier ...

Tuesday's Documentary
Two hundred and thirty-six soldiers have been killed in Ulster since the emergency began in 1969. But very little has been heard publicly about the thoughts and feelings of the ordinary serviceman.
Tonight's film covers three weeks in the life of eight riflemen bound for a routine four-month tour of duty in Belfast. How do they feel about patrolling hostile streets - knowing they may be shot? 'I'm terrified, but I don'like to show it. You think you might get shot, but you don'actually think you'll be killed. If I die, I die-the only thing that worries me is to be turned into a cabbage.'
The film begins at a secret training area where the men are learning the techniques of coping with an urban guerrilla war - the first time the Army have permitted photography in so sensitive a zone. The film ends in a make-shift barracks close to Belfast's 'Hijack Corner,' where the same men have to put these techniques into practice on either side of the ' Peace Line.'

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.
