: Families at War

Last of three programmes. 'You couldn't get down a street without at least two or three cups of tea being forced down you.... There was no
"Brits go home". It was "Yes please, Brits come here.'" The Regiment
In 1969, Jamie Daniell was a young subaltern in the Royal Green Jackets. His posting to Northern Ireland was his first taste of real soldiering since he'd joined the army. Two years later, on the afternoon of internment, he was shot through the chest by an IRA sniper. He miraculously survived and has just become a colonel in his regiment. In the third of his programmes about the human cost of the last
20 years, Peter Taylor looks at the soldiers themselves. When they first arrived on the streets, the Catholics hailed them as saviours: now they live constantly on their guard against the IRA's bombs and bullets, isolated from the community they came to protect.

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.
