This week:
The Hebrew word that means peace
It's two years since the week of death and destruction in the Middle East now known to history as the Six Days War. But since the ceasefire nearly as many people have been killed in the shaky peace as during the war. And in the meantime Israel has entered her twenty-first year of independence-still fighting.
As the politicians bargain and the death toll mounts, the strain on the ordinary people of Israel grows. If a nation is living with unease and fear, how do ordinary families react to the pressures? In Jerusalem the older children arrive earlier at school to search their classrooms for bombs. Shopping in city streets can end in disaster with a grenade explosion, a sniper's bullet, or a shell. On the border Kibbutzim armed patrols and dug-outs are still part of everyday life. No family has been untouched by death or casualty.
But still the word you hear most is the daily greeting of the Israeli people—Shalom, peace. MAN ALIVE looks at the lives of Israeli families living under the stresses of that kind of peace today.

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.
