'The series which explores living memory ' is ten years old. This is the eighth and last of a series of programmes from its earlier years. Five Years' Nightmare
The extraordinary story of a teenage girl on the run from the Gestapo in war-time Europe.
One sunny day in May 1940, 16-year-old Gergana Taneva was out walking with some friends 'when suddenly there were screams of German voices and we found that the street from all sides was closed. A big lorry drove in front of us and then another and another one. We were panic-stricken. We started to run...' It was the start of a five years' nightmare.
"Her story can have left few viewers unmoved" (Daily Telegraph)

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.
