Tonight: Cease-Fire
Unarmed between two fighting armies, they sit like impotent umpires at a lethal tennis match-the men in the blue berets of the United Nations observer mission on the Suez Canal - reporting the daily breaches of the cease-fire, the bombardment and aerial attacks by both Israelis and Egyptians.
In Cyprus, on wind-swept mountain tops, in the cities and on the plains, a multi-national force of UN soldiers stands firm between the armies and keeps the peace between Turkish and Greek Cypriots.
From his Jerusalem headquarters GENERAL ODD BULL commutes between the warring capitals negotiating cease-fires when all else fails, and pleading for the safety of his neutral observers - the Irish, Swedes, Austrians, Finns, French, Argentinians and Chileans - whose front-line posts are frequently bombed, shelled or mortared.
How effective are these umpires who, in the name of us all, attempt to keep the peace? JIM DOUGLAS HENRY and a Man Alive film crew spent six weeks under fire observing a cease-fire that frequently isn't.

: My World.... and Welcome To It

An invitation to step into the humorous and imaginative world of James Thurber
A series based on a selection of his stories and cartoons starring
This week:
Little girls are sugar and spice - and not always nice.
Being a father is in itself a defeating vicissitude. How could cruel fate add the further indignity of a daughter so superior in intellect that the wretched infant can, quite unforgivably, win every game of chess? Life is like that.

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.
