Attack on Terror


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.
First of a two-part fact-based drama, starring Wayne Rogers

1964, Mississippi: a reign of terror and violence by the Ku Klux Klan results in the disappearance of three black civil rights workers who were working to encourage local protest against the segregation laws. When they subsequently turn up dead, the FBI is forced to respond, and so begins a campaign by the Bureau's agents to get to the bottom of a case which appears, at first glance, to be intractable. A campaign against fear in the heart of America.

The events depicted also inspired Alan Parker's movie Mississippi Burning. Part 2 is on Thursday at 1 1.25pm.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
