: Greece: The Seven Black Years

Tuesday's Documentary Life in Greece under the Dictatorship 1967-1974
Written and narrated by PETER LEVI
This programme, filmed only weeks after the fall of the Colonels, investigates what it was like to live in Greece during those seven years. What sort of resistance was possible? And how were people able to express their feelings against the regime?
The film includes remarkable documentary footage of the Poly-technic siege of November 1973 and describes an attempt by the resistance movement in Crete to stage a spectacular show of force against the Colonels. put above all it listens to ordinary people describing their own experiences of those seven years - seven long years which will never be forgotten.

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.
