Peter and Dan Snow: 20th Century Battlefields: 2/8. Midway - 1942


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.
Tonight the father-and-son team fly to the middle of the Pacific Ocean to give a blow-by-blow account of the Battle of Midway in 1942, a pivotal naval campaign between the US and Japan in the Second World War. Japan's crushing loss weakened their navy and meant the Americans could seize the initiative in the Pacific and go on the offensive to eventually gain clear supremacy. Peter examines how the bombers struck the blows on the Japanese Imperial Navy's mighty carriers. Dan explains the pilots' stories and experiences what it would have been like for the sailors as their ships burst into flames.

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.
