Principles at War
In the borders of Afghanistan, by the Khyber Pass, a young Russian soldier is handed over alive by his guerrilla captors to the International Committee of the Red Cross. In this notoriously bitter and ferocious conflict a small group of Swiss negotiators are achieving the apparently impossible. For the first time, the Red Cross has allowed cameras to follow these tense and delicate negotiations.
David Jessel tells the story of idealism in practice, and the struggle - medical and political - to keep the victims of both sides of this bloody conflict alive.

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.
