The Long Watch
Fifty Years of Radar with William Woollard It all began 50 years ago in a muddy field in Northamptonshire with three scientists, an RAF bomber and a borrowed BBC short-wave transmitter. The experiment was to lead to the radar which won the Battle of Britain and defeated the U-boats in the Atlantic.
Today civil airlines could not operate without it, neither could the space programme. Radar also forms NATO's first line of defence in the cold war; it has come a long way from that muddy field.

: The Visit: The Boy David Trilogy

with Desmond Wilcox
The award-winning film story that touched the hearts of the nation-now a trilogy, to bring it up to date.
1: The Boy David
He was the baby from the Peruvian jungle abandoned in a paupers' hospital, the centre of his face destroyed by disease. He has become a miracle of surgical achievement - and of love-since Ian Jackson , the distinguished plastic surgeon, took on the job of rebuilding his face. And the whole Jackson family took on the job of giving him a home -and family.
One of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen. (DAILY EXPRESS) The kindness of all concerned, the inventive genius of Ian Jackson 's surgical team ana, most of all, the sheer pluck and will to live of the little boy will haunt the memory for years to come. (DAILY MAIL) Every penny, every moment of time, every inch of film spent on the making of this unforgettable
Desmond Wilcox documentary was justified last night. It was all so moving, tears alone didn't seem enough. (GLASGOW EVENING TIMES) An extraordinary story of tremendous compassion and determination and an unusual and moving tribute to the warmth of human kindness. (DAILY TELEGRAPH) Director ALEX MCCALL
Producer DESMOND WILCOX BBC Scotland

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.
