: Inside Story

The acclaimed documentary series returns with six more investigations.
In Cold Blood.
When British soldiers shot dead 24 Chinese
"terrorists" in Malaya in December 1948 it was said to be one of the most successful operations in the war against the communists. However, the truth of what happened in this tiny Malayan village has haunted the British army for more than 40 years.
Eye-witnesses claim that the dead were unarmed, innocent civilians, who were shot down in cold blood. Wong Ying , who was one of the witnesses to the incident, says: "In my mind it was an atrocity. No questions asked, no investigations. It was a cruel slaughter."
Eric Lazenby and Don Houlston , the first soldiers to come upon the carnage in the days after the shooting, were never told exactly what their friends had done. Returning to the scene of the killing, they try to unravel the mystery.
Inside Story reveals the secrets of a very British massacre - and the cover up which followed. Producer Peter Dale

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.
