: Soldiers

A History of Men in Battle Presented by Frederick Forsyth Air Power
Air power is a relative newcomer to the battlefield, yet in the comparatively few years since aircraft made their first faltering contribution to the soldier's business they have had a profound effect on the way he lives and fights. Air Power looks at the way aircraft have affected the life of the soldier on the ground, by bombing and strafing him and interdicting his supply lines. It also traces the evolution of the airborne soldier from the great parachute operations of World War II to the helicopter cavalry of the Vietnam War.

Mark Kaylor v
Errol Christie
This final eliminator for the British Middleweight

Boris Becker
Next week Boris Becker plays in Britain for the first time since his memorable
Wimbledon win last July.
Over the past four months he has become a tennis superstar both in his native West Germany and on the world circuit.

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.
