: A CITIZEN'S WAR

1939-45
A miscellany of verse and prose compiled and arranged by GEORGE MACBETH and introduced by HUGH BURDEN
Readers,
GENE BARO , HUGH DICKSON TED HUGHES , ZÉLIE MORRIS
When Ernest Hemingway used John Donne's phrase ' No man is an island ' as part of the epigraph for his novel For Whom the Bell Tolls, he was expressing the sense of mutual involvement felt by many participants in the Spanish Civil War. The second world war, which began twenty-five years ago today, was everyone's war more emphatically than any great conflict had been before. From Dunkirk to Hiroshima, from the London blitz to the Nazi concentration camps, there was a total involvement of members of all the fighting nations. In tonight's programme. the response of imaginative writers to the war is presented in verse and prose from six countries.

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.
