: ' I BUILT A WALL'

Talk by Gwilym V. John
Gwilym V. John describes the tribulations of building a wall in front of his suburban house. His obvious ignorance of the technique of wall-building made him a target for all the guided and misguided counsel that neighbours are so ready to proffer.

: THE PLOT AGAINST HITLER

July 20. 1944
The story reconstructed from extant documents by H. R. Trevor-Roper
Narrator, Edward Ward
Others taking part:
Howard Marion-Crawford
Felix Felton , Carleton Hobbs Noel Johnson , Godfrey Kenton and Ralph Truman
Production by Joe Burroughs
A new production of the broadcast of July 20, 1947, with a specially contributed epilogue by Mr. Trevor-Roper
Twelve years have passed since the ' men of 20th July' failed in their plan to assassinate Hitler, to set up a new Government in Germany, and to bring the war to an end. Conflicting aims, human weaknesses, bad luck, and the position in which a group of individualists found themselves struggling against a mass state perhaps made failure inevitable. But the story of July 20, 1944, remains of considerable historical and moral significance, and the attitude of contemporary Germany to the men of 20th July' an important political barometer.

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.

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.
