: Images of War: 2: Ronnie Noble

The Cameramen 1939-45
A series of six programmes
Images and memories of World War II recalled by the cameramen and illustrated by their film.
For the six years of war all rivalry between the newsreel companies was forgotten. Film from any source was pooled, and shared to keep the British cinemagoers fed with news from the front.
Ronnie Noble was a young cameraman with Universal News. The story of his war is like a boy's adventure book. He filmed the fighting in France, Syria and the Western Desert. He was taken prisoner, escaped, joined the French Resistance and finished the war filming in the Far East.

Researcher: James Barker
Producer: Tom Conway

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.
