: Inside Story Special

Remember Bloody Sunday
Twenty years ago this week,
British Army paratroopers shot and killed 13 Roman Catholic civil rights marchers and wounded 13 more in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Reporter Peter Taylor has obtained exclusive interviews with the soldiers involved, including their commanding officer on the day, none of whom has spoken publicly since. Combined with powerful testimonies from eyewitnesses, these interviews bring a dramatic new perspective to bear on that fateful afternoon in January 1972. The army claimed at the time that they had shot gunmen and nailbombers, but no weapons were recovered and none of the victims was found to be armed. Seen by the Catholic people of Derry as a massacre, Bloody Sunday was a watershed that drove hundreds of young people into the arms of the IRA and a campaign of violence that 20 years on shows no signs of ending.

Executive producer Paul Hamann

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.
