: The Cost of Treachery

In 1949, at the height of the Cold War, the British and American Governments decided to fight back at the growing Soviet Empire with a secret plan of subversion. MI6 and the CIA would try to bring down the smallest and most vulnerable of the new Soviet-controlled regimes - Albania. In this film, for the first time, many of the agents involved tell their extraordinary story. It includes moonlit landings on deserted beaches, poison capsules, mysterious deaths in New York hotel rooms, and the crack bodyguard of King Zog. For some of the spies it was exhilarating fun and part of a great game. For the Albanians involved it was to mean death, for in the midst of the operation was a traitor.

: Claire Rayner's Casebook

Incest is not a subject people often talk about. Richard and Shirley are two people who believe this conspiracy of silence must be broken. They tell Claire how they were sexually abused by their father, and how they finally came to terms with the trauma of their childhood experiences.
They describe the work of the Incest Crisis Line, and Claire talks to a past victim and the mother of an abused child who were both helped by the line.

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.
