: Hirohito: Behind the Myth

After his enthronement in 1928 Emperor Hirohito of Japan became, in the eyes of his people, a living god. But to the Allies in the Second World War he was, along with Hitler and Mussolini one of the three most hated men in the world. After
Japan's defeat there were calls for his trial as a war criminal. Yet by the time of his death early this month, he was portrayed by the new Japan as a benign father-figure and keen marine biologist. Veteran journalist and author Edward Behr , after a two-year personal investigation, re-examines the most enigmatic leader of the 20th century using eye-witness accounts, diaries of contemporaries privy to him in key situations, wartime records and previously unseen archive film. What emerges will call not only for a reassessment of the Emperor, but also the myth that lies behind him. Film editor MIKE JACKSON Executive producers

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.
