The Bulls-Eye War
If you can locate your target, you can destroy it. One shot, one tank - or one aircraft or even one ship. This stark fact has changed the face of ' conventional' warfare just in the last few years. The Arab-Israeli war of 1973 was a nasty shock to military thinkers. Egyptians carrying small Russian suitcases crossed the Suez canal in broad daylight and proceeded to knock out Israeli tanks one shot at a time. The Israelis replied and in the space of 21 days both sides lost 3,000 tanks and 600 aircraft to precision guided weapons.
In this new world of electronic wizardry in warfare, missiles guided by their own television cameras, by infra-red or radar seekers, computers and laser rays, have no need of humans. Furthermore, they are cheaper than frigates, manned aircraft, and tanks, which they can hit with a single, bull's-eye shot. So where does that leave European defences? Narrator FRANK GILLARD

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
