: MAN OVERBOARD

A true story of the sea told by men of the Royal Navy
Collected and introduced by Margot Campbell
Summing-up by Admiral of the Fleet
Sir George Creasy
The aircraft carrier Implacable is caught in a sudden gale. Waves are sweeping the flight deck fifty feet up, and the great ship pitches and tosses violently. In a hangar, motor-boats break loose and career about on their steel trolleys. The bo'sun's pipe screeches, and through the ship's loudspeakers comes the call ' Man overboard, starboard quarter.'
On the bridge, while captain and navigator deal with this situation, there follow two more messages. An armour-plated door twenty-five feet high is loose, sliding to and fro, in danger of breaking out through the ship's side; and fire has broken out in a wireless office. The ship's company rally to deal with all these dangers, as they tell in their own words.

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.
