1944: when Quint Munroe leads a reconnaissance flight over Occupied France, he confirms British Army Intelligence information that development work on V3 rockets is being undertaken at the Chateau de Charlon in underground rocket installations. Even though it becomes known that hundreds of RAF PoWs- including Quint's best friend David Scott -have been moved into the chateau, Munroe's Mosquito Squadron receives explicit orders: the installations must be destroyed.

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.
