: The Jews of Leeds

An Album of Memories
A hundred years ago this month - on 13 March 1881 - Tsar Alexander II of Russia was killed by an assassin's bomb. The Imperial Government blamed the Jews and the wave of pogroms which ensued started one of the biggest migrations in history as the Jews fled to Britain and America.
Many settled in Leeds, and tonight, in the first of two films, members of the city's 18,000-strong community bring to life the scraps of personal history that gave Leeds its Jewish tradition. Part 1: The flight from Russia; Life in the Leeds ghetto; The sweatshops Narrator JEFFREY SEGAL
(Part 2 is on Thursday at 7.45 pm)


Unknown: Tsar Alexander
Narrator: Jeffrey Segal

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.
