: What Did You Do in the War, Auntie?

As part of the VE Day celebrations, the conclusion of a two-part look at the BBC duringthe Second World War.
The Fourth Arm. BBC reporter Frank Gillard describes how Field Marshal
Montgomery regarded the wireless as the "fourth arm of warfare". The programme War Report carried vivid recordings from the battle fronts of Europe and the Far East. Meanwhile, singers and performers like Vera Lynn , Yehudi Menuhin , Charlie Chester ,
Henry Hall , George Formby and Noël
Coward kept the country cheerful with music and comedy. And in Europe, the BBC's foreign language broadcasts brought news and encouragement to a Nazi-occupied Europe. To unnerve the occupyingforces the BBC began its "Vfor Victory" campaign overthe airwaves, in Morse code the letter is represented by three dots and a dash, musically by the opening notes of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Producer Jeremy Bennett

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.
