The Cameramen 1939-45
A series of six programmes 3: Normandy Landing
By the time the Allies invaded Europe in June 1944, the British Army had trained and equipped its own band of tough, independent cameramen. Commanding Officer Hugh Stewart remembers the kind of men who were selected and the training they were given.
Desmond O'Neill was one of the Sergeant Cameramen who landed on D-Day. Wounded late in the morning, he was evacuated back to England. He brought his dramatic film with him and it was the first to be shown in the newsreels of the fighting on the British-held beaches.

: Hindsight

How much can one man do to revitalise a depressed area? In 1963 the Prime Minister Harold Macmillan , appointed Lord Hailsham to a new post - Minister for the North East. His job was to get the unemployment figures down, and at the same time, to try to give the people there more faith in themselves. Today the area is still depressed, and the idea has never been repeated.
Eric Robson asks Lord Hailsham, whether with hindsight, this was a sensible way for the government to tackle the problem.

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.

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