The Price of Peace: 1
Tragedy in Northern Ireland has seemed an all too familiar news headline, since the present strife began 11 years ago. The statistics are grim enough but behind the tragedies are many untold stories. An old news film gives the bare outline of two brothers found shot dead; another unsolved sectarian crime for the police, but a personal and unforgettable nightmare for a mother. In this two-part film, Joan Orr tells her own story of her hopes and fears during that night in 1972 when her family became news headlines; how subsequently tragedy turns into a kind of hope, and how she found the faith to survive.

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.
