: The Visit

Dramatic journeys in five people's lives with Desmond Wilcox
Love Letters
In wartime Lancashire Betty Allen , then 26, went to a GI dance and agreed at the end of it to keep a date with an American air force sergeant. They never kept that date because of a series of accidents, mistimings and his posting to train for one of World War 11's most daring bomber raids. They wrote letters to each other - many of them. But he was shot down over the Ploesti oil fields and reported killed in action. Betty married someone else and the pile of letters - which had become increasingly more loving - was tied in a ribbon. Then
Chuck Bridges surfaced, alive and recovering from wounds, in a prisoner-of-war camp - determined to return to
Britain and marry Betty.
She told him it was too late - the letters between them stopped. Forty years later they met again, Betty a widow, he happily married and living in New Mexico. It was an affectionate reunion in memory of the wartime romance that never happened.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
