: Forty Minutes

... of documentary. A season of films portraying issues, stories and characters. The Hijack
On the coach to Maine that turned out of New York's Central Bus Terminal on Independence Day 1977 was a disturbed and resentful man. In his pocket was a revolver. Within ten hours two other passengers were murdered in cold blood, 21 others were hostages in fear of their lives, and one of the world's busiest international airports was at a standstill.
This story of the Kennedy Hijack is told by: Frank Bolz and Julio Vasquez , New York policemen who negotiated with the murderer by radio telephone;
Bruce de Boer, who answered the police looking down the barrel of the murderer's revolver; and from his prison cell, Louis Robinson, the murderer himself.
Their statements and the original police tape recordings build up a unique picture of the disintegrating mind of a cornered and desperate man.

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.
