starring
Walter Fitzgerald Mervyn Johns
Ealing Studios' classic war film is a tribute to the Merchant Navy, based on the heroic recovery of MV San Demetrio by her crew in 1940. Carrying 12,000 tons of petrol and 900 miles from Britain, the ship was shelled by a German battleship and caught fire. What happened next was described by an official of the shipping company as 'an epic which will go down in history wherever tales of the sea are told'.

: In Search of the Trojan War

written and presented by Michael Wood
In the past century archaeologists have tried to prove Homer's story true by excavating the legendary city of Troy. But is there evidence in the telling of the tale itself?
3: The Singer of Tales The written word has preserved Homer's story through the centuries. For him, though, the legend of the heroes came down through more than ten generations by word of mouth alone. Amazingly that story-telling tradition still survives today. Ireland, Turkish Armenia, Gallipoli and Troy itself provide some clues that might add up to a real Greek expedition against the city.

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.
