Investigative science series.
Simon's Return. For veterans of any war, going back to the battle fields is always a moving experience. For Simon Weston , whose body was 45 per cent burned on the Sir Galahad when it was bombed, going back was an attempt to conquer his recurrent nightmares.
Tonight's programme follows Weston and two other British veterans, John Meredith and Gary Tytler , on a remarkable journey. They travel first to the Falklands where they revisit the battle sites and memorials and then to Argentina where they meet some of the men against whom they had fought. In Buenos Aires, Simon Weston meets the pilot who bombed the Sir Galahad "I want to look into his eyes and see what's there," says Weston "to find out if there is a human being inside."

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.
