by Kenneth Langmaid based on the book by William Frischauer and Robert Jackson
British Naval Officers, Petty Officers, seamen. Norwegian Naval Officers.

Produced by Archie Campbell
The action takes place in Whitehall, on board the German tanker Altmark at sea in the Atlantic, in H.M.S. Cossack, and in Norwegian territorial waters.
The year is 1939. From September I to December 7 the Altmark was the supply-ship for the Admiral Graf Spee; she was also a floating prison for the survivors of the Spee's victims. This is the story of the Altmark in the weeks following the sinking of the Admiral Graf Spee.

: The Quiet Road

For years, people on one side of the A5 -the arterial route from London to the North - West — have been virtual ' foreigners ' to those on the other. Day and night the heavy through traffic has made the houses shake, the windows dirty, and the road uncrossable.
Now that the MI motorway has taken
. off much of the traffic, WALTER SCHWARZ has taken a trip along the now quiet A5—through St. Albans, Dunstable, Redbourne, and several villages on Watling Street-and has talked to residents and travellers along it.

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.
