: Battle for Warsaw

To many people, particularly the Poles who survived it, the 1944 Warsaw Uprising ranks among the great and controversial epics of human history. It cost the lives of nearly a quarter-of-a-million non-Communist Poles. But it was also the first skirmish in the Cold War. Armed only with home-made or captured weapons, and outnumbered by more than three to one, the citizens of Warsaw held out for over two months against the German panzers. Their wish was to liberate their capital for themselves before the Russians came. But although the Red Army was only ten miles away, Stalin waited weeks before offering even token support to the beleaguered Poles, which, in the event, was too little and too late. The film marks the centenary this month of the birth of General Sikorski, the . wartime Polish leader. Narrator

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.
