A series of six true stories Narrated by René Culforth Written and produced by ALAN BURGESS
4: The Night of the Earthquakewith
Gilles Dattas , Blain Fairman
In February 1960 an earthquake almost completely destroyed the small Moroccan seaside town of Agadir killing 20,000 people. Many holiday-makers were trapped in terrifying circumstances: Sue Martin, a young American girl buried 60 feet down for nearly two days, knew that her chances of rescue were very small indeed.

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.
