An Ocean Apart


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
When the 20th century opened, Britain dominated world affairs, and America stood on the sidelines. Now their positions are reversed. This is the story of how it happened.
1: Hats Off to Mr Wilson
It was a war across the Ocean, places we had never seen ...
WINSTON ROCHE US First World War veteran
They had no conception of what it was like here ... we had to bring it home to them.
Secretary to
David Lloyd George
Tonight's programme, presented by David Dimbleby , tells how the Americans were dragged reluctantly into the First World War, of their nightmarish journey across the Atlantic, their welcome in Liverpool - and their disillusion when the war was over. For President Woodrow Wilson , victory had turned sour, but America had started its journey towards world leadership.

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.
