: Will Hay in Ask a Policeman

starring
Moore Marriott , Graham Moffatt
The sleepy hamlet of Turnbotham Round prides itself on being ' a village without crime'. Well, at least no arrests have been made for over ten years, which to some people is not quite the same thing. Sergeant Dudfoot and his assistants, Albert and Harbottle, are told to make an arrest soon - or face the sack. Their attempts at crime-busting provide the basis for one of the most hilarious comedies in the history of British cinema.

CCF camp. So it is with no sense of pleasure or excitement that he joins eight members of Radley's

: Echoes: Germany and' Holocaust '

The Hollywood version of what happened to Jews in the Third Reich caused argument and reflection wherever it was shown. But in West Germany, the reaction to the series was sensational.
Cautious television executives decided against ' blockbuster presentation and almost hid the American series away on the third channel. But at least half the population watched it and many thousands phoned in their comments, or wrote letters. In schools, factories and above all in homes, emotions and memories were released which many people had repressed for years.
Valerie Singleton reports on the effects of the series. She talks to Germans whose own lives were caught up in small but horrific ways with the Final Solution. And she tests the attitudes of one of the very few Jewish families left in Germany. The father was an inmate of Dachau - and still lives in the village nearby.

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
