A series of films about real lives - now
'We're in a war 24 hours a day,' says the Lance Corporal. She's a Greenfinch - one of the 700 women of the Ulster
Defence Regiment. These frontline women in uniform are a little-known part of Northern Ireland's security forces. Tonight, for the first time, three of them tell their stories.
In combat clothing, on patrol day and night, they're hard to tell apart from male soldiers. Off-duty, at home, these women are at their most vulnerable to attack; one Greenfinch is married to an English Catholic, another relies on her doberman pinscher for protection.
Now they tell their personal reasons for joining the Regiment, and reveal the active part they play in troubled Ulster.

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.
