Blizzard: Race to the Pole


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.
6/6. Bruce Parry and his team finally make it to the Pole, but will they make it back to base camp? The four remaining men have lost a staggering amount of weight - on average 19 per cent of their total body weight - which is making them increasingly susceptible to the cold. And, like Scott before them, the lack of food threatens to destroy their attempt to return to base camp safely.
BBC History Magazine's September issue has an article on the programme and the 1911 race to the Pole. Out now priced E3.60 RT DIRECT: the hardback BBC book Blizzard: Race to the Pole is available from BBC Shop for just £11.99 including p&p. To order, call [number removed] (landline calls cost a maximum of 8p per minute), quoting RTD20; send a cheque, payable to BBC Shop, to BBC Shop, [address removed]: or visit www.bbcshop.com Alison Graham on real men: page 31

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.
