An Australian Family at War A powerful award-winning mini-series in five parts tracing the effect of Australia's controversial involvement in the Vietnam war through the experiences of one family. Starring
1: Canberra, November 1964In government circles the major question is whether Australia should commit troops to aid the Americans in Vietnam. The Prime
Minister's aide, Douglas Goddard , supports conscription. At home, his son Phil is more interested in becoming a photographer than in contemplating foreign wars. His daughter, Megan, is growing up fast and growing aware of her sexuality, while his wife, Evelyn, is becoming increasingly frustrated by Douglas's patronising manner. Then comes the fateful day of the conscription ballot - it is a day that will change the Goddard's lives irrevocably and in every sense turn them into 'a family at war'. Written by TERRY HAYES.

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.
