: The Codebreakers

5: The Lucy Ring
Presented by Rene Cutforth
The Lucy Ring was probably the most effective espionage network of the Second World War. It was Russian and it operated in Switzerland. Through this network, Stalin was told the date of the German invasion of Russia - but he didn't believe it. Only after Hitler invaded on the day Lucy said he would, did Stalin take notice and fight the war largely on the contents of Lucy's messages. But who was Lucy? Where did the flow of incredible top secret German information come from? And what were the coding techniques used by the Russians to keep their information secret?
Based on the book by DAVID KAHM Director STUART HARRIS

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.
