: IN THE HANDS OF THE INFIDEL

A discussion between
Sir Brian Horrocks, K.C.B.
G.O.C.-in-C. British Army of the Rhine until his retirement in 1949 Alfred Torrie formerly Brigadier and Director of Army Psychiatry
Nigel Balchin
Novelist, industrial consultant. and a wartime scientific adviser to the Army Council
Richard Viner ex-prisoner-of-war under the Japanese
Chairman, Alec Peterson formerly Director-General of Information Services in the Federation of Malaya, now Headmaster of Dover College
In modern ideological warfare information provided by prisoners may be just as important for propaganda as it is for military intelligence. The questions to be discussed are whether it would be possible or prudent to instruct prisoners-of-war to say anything that their captors desire and whether this would help to reduce, the propaganda value of prisoners' statements.

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.
