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.
This week: Terror (part 2) To Confront or Concede?
5 Oct 70: James Cross , British diplomat, is kidnapped in Montreal. 8 Jan 71: Sir Geoffrey Jackson is kidnapped in Uruguay and imprisoned for eight-and-a-half months. The conventional forces of law and order face an agonising dilemma when confronted by the urban guerrilla. Jeanne La Chard talks to James Cross and Sir Geoffrey Jackson.
The programme includes rare film of srR GEOFFREY in his prison cell with a Tupamaro member explaining the reasons for his imprisonment. And the New York police, in the holt-seat over so many hostage situations, are shown in training as negotiators. But it is the question of whether to ' deal with terrorists on which world opinion is most divided, and it is in Germany, recently, that the dilemma has been most clearly speit out

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.
