The Second World War ended
40 years ago. In Europe hostilities ceased in May. In the Far East the fighting and suffering continued for a further three months.
Cliff Michelmore meets some of the survivors from the 'forgotten army' in the East. He talks to Guy Kynaston who worked on the infamous
Burma-Siam railway; to Bob Guy , an RAF prisoner of war who has since committed himself to work for peace; and Marjorie Pringle who nursed casualties from the Battle of Kohima. They join the congregation of ex-servicemen, members of the armed forces and local
Christians in St Nicholas'
Cathedral, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Dreamscape
Years of our lives are passed in the dreamscapes of sleep, yet the phenomenon of dreams remains largely a mystery to us. We say 'it was only a dream' to dismiss these phantasms, and reassure ourselves that we have returned to reality. But recent research is blurring the distinction between sleeping and waking states. In the last ten years investigators have discovered that some 'lucid dreamers', can perform pre-arranged experiments in their sleep, and even send messages acfbss the sleep barrier to the waking world. The results of these experiments have provided startling insights into sleep consciousness.
Everyman examines the story of lucid dream research, and encounters a puzzle well-known to the most ancient religious traditions: how can we ever be sure we're awake? Film editor TREVOR WILLIAMSON Series producer DANIEL WOLF
Producer CHRISTIAN FORSSANDER

Ian Richardson , Robin Bailey In the late 1780s Mozart's genius was at its peak. But his popularity was waning, his money troubles were getting worse and his low-paid official duties merely required him to provide ballroom dances for the entertainment of Viennese society. Yet in spite of all his worries, and the death of his father and baby daughter
Theresia, during this period he wrote his last three great symphonies.

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.
