: Gone Tomorrow: 3: Ask Any Old Soldier

A series of six documentary films in which the flavour of a vanishing Britain is captured by Terence Carroll

On the roads leading into Aldershot there are signs proclaiming proudly that the town is The Home of the British Army. If you were to ask any old soldier who had served there what he thought of the place he would hardly choose a comfy word like 'home,' but today's Aldershot is vastly different from that experienced by millions of men on their way to all our wars. Gloomy old barracks have been knocked down to make room for a bright new military town that bewilders Old Contemptibles but suits young parachutists. This film catches it as it is-and was.


Presenter: Terence Carroll
Producer: Brian Lewis

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.
