: Timewatch

Presented by John Tusa The Klagenfurt Affair
In May 1945, British soldiers near the Austrian border town of Klagenfurt handed over 26,000 Yugoslav anti-Communist refugees to Tito's Communist partisans. Many officers who carried out these orders had little doubt that the refugees would be massacred. The victims were disarmed, and taken across the border into Yugoslavia where the partisans machine-gunned them. Yet the Cabinet in London had ordered that the refugees should not be handed back and Field-Marshal Alexander , the Commander-in-Chief of the area, issued orders to hold the refugees in their camps, even though reports of the handover had reached his headquarters.
Who was responsible? Timewatch has investigated the records and, for the first time, British officers and Yugoslav survivors describe what happened. The Black Death
In 1348, the Black Death killed one in three of the population. Until now we have always assumed it was an outbreak of bubonic plague. Now a zoologist suggests a far more fearsome disease was the cause.
Christopher Andrew investigates.

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.
