: Yesterday's Witness: The Shell House Raid

21 March 1945: the date of one of the RAF's most daring and difficult low-level raids.
The target: Shell House in the centre of Copenhagen, which the Gestapo had commandeered as their headquarters. Here they were collecting more and more damaging information about the Danish Resistance which was in danger of being wiped out.
To destroy the Gestapo records meant precision bombing at its most accurate, for not only was Shell House in the middle of a heavily populated area but the Germans had put captured Resistance leaders in cells on the top floor - as hostages against possible attack from the air.
Air Chief Marshal Sir Basil Embry, other senior RAF officers who took part in the raid and wartime members of the Danish Resistance tell of the success - and tragedy - of that day.

The Commanders - Marshal of the RAF Sir Arthur Harris: Tues, 9.25 pm BBC1.
The Shell raid: a justifiable risk?: p 12

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.
