: The Paras

Seven programmes written and presented by Glyn Worsnip 5: Wings
At last the surviving members of 480 Platoon move on to parachuting. Only 17 of the original 41 are left. RAF instructors take over from the army to introduce a world of new skills and drills - exits, drifts, twists, landings; coping with them must become second nature. The recruits experience 'the fan', 'the tower', 'the knacker cracker'. Soon they are ready for their first jump -from a balloon cage 800 feet above RAF Hullavington. 'Just like stepping off the pavement,' says an instructor. But that is not how 480 Platoon see it. One of them refuses ... As the parachuting continues, comes news from the Falklands. Casualties are being taken by 2 and 3 Para. 480 Platoon, their training still incomplete, are put on 24-hour standby as reinforcements....

The programme which asks you, the viewer, to turn crimefighter
with Nick Ross and Sue Cook
You will see dramatic reconstructions of recent crimes - the police provide the evidence to date, you could provide the leads they need.
This month: the tragic fate of a 9-year-old Humberside boy; and a murder in the shady world of the drug dealer. Can you help the police in their hunt for the killers? There's another Aladdin's cave of stolen property - one of the treasures might be yours.
Sue Cook and Nick Ross will be waiting for your call in the Crimewatch studio. Police officers David Hatcher and Helen Phelps report on the latest crime news from the Incident Desk. Backing them up, investigating officers man banks of telephone lines, and local police forces around the country will be standing by to act on information received. You may think your recollection is unimportant - but it could be the clue that solves the crime.
If you can help, call the Crimewatch number, [number removed], any time from 9.25 till the end of the evening. The Crimewatch team is back on the air for updates and reminders at 11.35 pm.

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.
