: THE GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTRY DOCUMENTS

The story of their capture and publication
K. H. M. Duke, who was in charge of the British editorial team in Germany, describes the mixture of foresight, luck, and skill that led to the finding of the documents
James Joll , who has worked on them as joint Editor-in-Chief, speaks of the editorial problems they present
Alan Bullock considers the contents of the first volume, ' From Neurath to Ribbentrop,' and assesses the value of the documents for the modern historian
Some 400 tons of documents-archives of the German Foreign Ministry and the Reich Chancellery from 1867 to the defeat of the Nazis-were captured by the Allies as a result of Germany's defeat. An international team of British, American, and French historians is sifting the material and preparing it for publication. The first volume, already issued in America, appears in this country next month.

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.
