: The Bombers

During the war, doubts were expressed, and have been echoed since it ended, about the effectiveness, the morality and the cost in men, money and materials, of the offensive mounted against German cities by RAF Bomber Command. What part did the bomber play in winning the war? Could the same results, or better ones, have been achieved in other ways? Was the mass bombing of the German population legitimate, or necessary in the circumstances of the time? This retrospective assessment is compiled from the specially recorded reminiscences of Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir Arthur Harris ; Albert Speer. Minister of Armament and War Production in the wartime German government: and former members of Bomber Command air crews who flew missions over Germany. Narrated by David Mahlowe Reader RUSSELL DIXON

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
