Prisoners of Zion
In Israel the trial has just begun of 25 alleged terrorists, which is already causing alarm throughout the country. It is the climax of a chain of events that began when two Arab mayors on the occupied West Bank were blown up in their cars in 1980. Next
Palestinian students at a West Bank university were gunned down by masked men. Finally Israeli secret service agents discovered bombs underneath five Jerusalem buses timed to explode at the height of the rush-hour. When the suspects were arrested, they turned out to be respectable devout Jews: the leading defendants even had a personal friend in the cabinet. There had also been plans for the most spectacular operation -to blow up the Dome of the Rock - Islam's most sacred shrine in Jerusalem.
Who are the terrorists - the so-called 'Jewish Underground'? Why did it take Israel's crack Shin Beth - their MI5 - over four years to break the case? Tom Mangold reports. Producer TIM SHAWCROSS Editor PETER IBBOTSON

: The 20th Century Remembered

by Jo Grimond with Keith Kyle
In the 1964 General Election Jo Grimond , as Leader of the Liberal Party, saw the number of Liberal seats increase for the first time since 1929. In the last of three programmes, he talks to Keith Kyle about his hopes at the time for a radical re-alignment of the politics of the Left.
At the age of 53, he quit the leadership of the Party - he reflects on the years that followed; on the crisis brought about by Jeremy Thorpe 's resignation as Leader, on his opposition to David Steel's
Lib/Lab pact which kept the Callaghan Labour Government in power for a further two years.

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.
