The return of the five-part drama tracing the experiences of a group of disparate Australians in World War I. Starring
1: The Great Adventure August 1914. When the 'mother country' declares war on Germany, the call goes out across Australia for volunteers to fight for the Empire. It is answered by a group of men from different backgrounds, with different aspirations, for different reasons. In the 8th Battalion of the Australian Imperial
Force they find comradeship and laughter as they train for the battlefields of France.
But the laughter stops when Turkey enters the war and the battalion is thrust into the hell of Gallipoli and given a new identity: the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps -the ANZACS.

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.
