A personal view
What du we care who rules the land
As long as we can plough our fields in peace
How much does this old Chinese poem reflect the feelings of people in Vietnam-both soldiers and civilians? Three journalists take a look at the day-to-day tasks that never make the headlines-the wearying business of simple survival.

: EUROPA

THREE HOURS IN JUNE
As a military victory even Joshua's horn-blowing pales in comparison with the crushing blow Israel delivered against the Arab nations in just six days.
Tonight Europa marks the second anniversary of the June war by showing the official Israeli version of how that victory was possible. It tells the full and dramatic story of how a ' handful of pilots' conquered the ' enemies ' that surround her. Sensational propaganda or serious warning? Three hours when ' the walls came tumbling down '—three hours that shook the Arab world.

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.
