: War at Sea: The Raid on St. Nazaire

It was called 'Operation Chariot' and produced five VCs, 78 other medals and 51 mentions in dispatches, between 611 men. Winston Churchill recognised it as one of the key successes of the war - and an act of almost incredible courage by 600 sailors and commandos.
At midnight on 27 March 1942 a force of Royal Navy and Commandos sailed up the River Loire, under heavy fire. Their objective - to destroy the giant Normandie dock at St Nazaire, prospective Atlantic base for the battleship Tirpitz. Against incredible odds, the dock was destroyed. But so was most of the attacking fleet.
The story is written and told by one of the survivors, former commando captain Michael Burn, MC, who finished the war in Colditz.

: The Front Line

A comedy in six parts by ALEX SHEARER
1: Malcom is getting ready for Security Patrol, and his half-brother Sheldon accuses him of only doing the job because he likes getting dressed up in uniforms.
While Malcom is on patrol he meets his friend Fraser who is a policeman, and shows enthusiasm for joining the force.
The brothers arrange their mother's burial with The Rev Colt, who is rather taken aback with the plans made by Sheldon. And
Malcom is concerned when he hears Sheldon's ideas for their home - a roots and culture club with bands etc. starring

Robert Key, mp, and women attending a TUC conference in Birmingham, talk about the nature of male power and what prevents women from challenging it effectively.
To give up their power men need to change their attitudes fundamentally. A few are doing so - among them the members of a London men's group which has been meeting for six years. Commentary

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.
