: Q.E.D.: A Guide to Armageddon

The last programme in this series is a two-part examination of the effects of nuclear weapons. Introduced by Ludovic Kennedy
The first half of the programme looks at the physical effects of a single medium-sized nuclear warhead on a large city. How effectively would various types of shelter protect us from these effects? Two couples experimentally live in fall-out shelters for ten days each.
The implications of the film are then discussed by medical, scientific and civil defence specialists.
Would cities be likely targets in a real nuclear attack? What kind of resources would be available to deal with the aftermath of such a calamity? And what could we do - practically - to diminish the effect if it ever were to happen?
(Part 2 - 'The Underground Test' on Friday 10.0 pm BBC2)

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.
