: Distant Guns

A series of six programmes in which British men and women recall their unusual or little known lives in uniform.
5: The Escape of HMS Amethyst
On 18 April 1949, His Majesty's Frigate Amethyst set sail from Shanghai up the Yangtze River to relieve the British Embassy in Nangking. China was in the throes of the civil war between Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists and Mao Tse-tung 's Communist forces on the north bank of the river. Seven of Amethyst's officers and ratings recall the attack and HMS Amethyst's subsequent 100 days' imprisonment on the river: a captivity that was only brought to an end by a dramatic dash for freedom.
Tho Escape of HMS Amethyst was a thrilling and touching account of how the frigate, with more than half her men killed, endured 100 days' captivity in the throat of the Yangtze River, then made an exhilarating dash lor it.

Ducking the Rocks - A Social Worker's Life
' I've visited places where mothers have actually told their children that I've come to take them away. 'The door of the council house opened, and I was confronted by a horse.'
Lots of people think they could do social work, even more think that they know what social workers do -well you've seen Juliet Bravo handed confidential files from her social worker husband and even Coronation Street's Ken Barlow was offered the job of a Senior Officer. Open Space followed a group of social workers in South Wales during three days in June.

' Next Year, Maybe....'
Since 1977, when the Left Front (Marxist) government came to power in West Bengal, its Comprehensive Area Development Cor. poration has been attempting to introduce some radical changes in 20 districts throughout the state. One is Sonamukhi, about 100 miles from Calcutta, where the panchayat (the village council) has been very active in promoting these changes for the benefit of the rural poor. What have they been able to do for landless labourers like Rahman Mandal, share-croppers like Akbar All Mulllck, and harijans like Somba Bauri and Gangabella?

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.
