Carrie's War


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.
Keeley Fawcett stars as a young evacuee in an evocative adaptation of Nina Bawden's classic novel.
Carrie and her young brother Nick are evacuated from wartime London and end up in a Welsh village, where they are taken in to a spartan home by kindly Lou and her strict brother. There they discover a completely different world of warmth and plenty at Druid's Bottom with the outrageous Hepzibah and her friends, tongue-tied Mr Johnny and Albert Sandwich. But after the death of Mrs Gotobed, friction begins to ensue among the householders.

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.
