Ulster's Regiment - a Question of Loyalty?
Last August's shooting of a young Catholic, Loughlin Maginn , was the 2,744th murder since the present Northern Ireland troubles began. But it will be remembered as the killing which triggered off a damaging row between the governments of London and Dublin. Maginn was targetted and murdered by Protestant terrorists using an intelligence file leaked from within forces there to prevent such violence. Next month a report on the collusion between
Loyalist paramilitaries and dissidents in the army and police will be delivered by a team of English detectives sent to plug the leaks. John Ware reveals disturbing new evidence that the principal source of leaks is from within the locally recruited Ulster Defence Regiment. Producer GEOFFREY SEED Editor TIM GARDAM

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
