: MacLeod's America

The first of an occasional film series in which Donny MacLeod samples the American life-style, coast-to-coast.
He begins in New York, surviving the breakneck pace of a tourist Saturday - from breakfast at Tiffany's to a midnight view from the Empire State Building. And he relaxes with the millions who spend their Sundays in Central Park. In a skyscraper city this is where everyone lets off steam - and today is Puerto Rico day.

: SOE-Setting Europe Ablaze

The first of eight stories about the Special Operations Executive.
Narrated by Michael Bryant
In the desperate summer of 1940 Prime Minister Winston Churchill dreamed of striking back at Hitler's all-conquering armies. Dunkirk had been a humiliation; Paris had fallen: the swastika flew from the Arctic ocean to the Bay of Biscay.
Conventional counter-attack was impossible but a strike from within might just work - sabotage, subversion, and a rising tide of resistance. The idea appealed to Churchill's romantic spirit. He gave Hugh Dalton, his Minister of Economic Warfare, one of the most secret jobs of World War II: he must form a new organisation - the Special Operations Executive.
SOE must infiltrate secret agents into occupied Europe. Where could they find such courageous people? How should they train and equip them? How could SOE breach Hitler's fortress and obey Churchill's command to 'set Europe ablaze'?

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.
