: Bombers

They have sown the wind and they shall reap the whirlwind.
(Hosea 8, v 7)
In using that biblical quotation at the outset of the Allied air offensive against Germany Air Marshal ' Bomber ' Harris was to be proved correct.
Since the war the military effectiveness of bombing towns and cities has been questioned, nevertheless during World War II 158,564 Allied airmen died in action against Germany. By far the largest percentage of the losses were the men of RAF Bomber Command and the USAAF 8th Airforce. The Americans bombed by day and the RAF by night. Even though cloaked by darkness Lancasters and Halifaxes suffered severe losses - up to 97 four-engine bombers during a single night. American B17 Fortresses and B24 Liberators flew by day in compact formations, relying for defence on massive firepower, yet they too suffered; losing as many as 69 aircraft on a single raid.
Tonight's programme graphically shows in rare wartime colour footage just what those ' maximum effort' raids were like for the young men who flew on them. Survivors from the crews of two bombers, an RAF Lancaster, V Victor' and an American B17 named ' Memphis Belle', look back across 35 years to their experience in the air war over Germany.

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.
