: Air-List For Yugoslavia

How the R.A.F. flew arms and supplies to Marshal Tito's partisans under the nose of the occupying enemy. Feature programme by Squadron Leader John Pudney, produced by Leonard Cottrell
This is a dramatised impression by Squadron Leader John Pudney of the work of an R.A.F. unit in Italy which for a long period past has been regularly flying arms and supplies to Marshal Tito's partisans. Some of these airmen have landed in Yugoslavia over a hundred times and they are experts at getting their aircraft down on improvised landing-strips in remote mountain valleys, with the enemy only a few miles away. On the return journey they frequently carry wounded partisans for hospital treatment in Italy.
The author knows these men well and has flown with them; real personalities are concealed behind such names as 'Johnny Lamplighter' and 'Forty-eight Hour Joe', which appear in the programme.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
