: Do They Mean Us?

Our sense of humour baffles foreigners, our politics bother them, our preoccupation with tradition bemuses them. And as to our attitude toward sex-c'est hardly 'formidable'. Tonight, and for the next five weeks, Derek Jameson looks at the way foreign television reports on the British.
Apparently we don't wash, we don't know how to bring up our children, and we are morose and miserable even on holiday. On the other hand, we are always polite, we are kind to animals, and we would be great in a crisis - if we knew one when we saw one. Derek Jameson , of course, brings his own special wit to bear on interpreting all these eccentric foreign reporters.... Research MARK ROGERS

: James Cameron: Once Upon a Time

5: A Most Reluctant Witness 'The last war to end war finished in 1945 with an atomic bang in Japan. And the war to end wars was followed by countless last wars all over the world, of very little importance to anyone except the millions of forgotten people who died in them. And just possibly, some of us who were paid to report them, the unarmed mercenaries who wrote the stories of other men's despair.'
This week the wheel comes full circle. James Cameron returns to his days as a war correspondent, and questions man's obsession with conflict.
For him - the beginning; for man - the end of innocence. Videotape editor ANDY QUESTED Film editor DAVID LEE

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.
