Robert Kee introduces the third of four tributes to the reporter who died last year. This week, two films. The Codebreakers Message to Moscow
On 24 October 1969 Russian spies Peter and Helen Kroger left London in an exchange deal with the Russians.
Members of the Portland Spy Ring, they were probably the most capable spies ever caught. Had MI5 not been following Gordon Lonsdale , head of the spy ring,
Superintendent Smith of Scotland Yard might never have found the suburban house in Cranley Drive-the centre of the Kroger's communication operation. In 1970 Rene Cutforth investigated the Kroger story. and A Country
Walk Avebury to
Stonehenge Rene took this 25-mile walk through Stone Age, Saxon and Norman England in 1971 revealing his great love of the English countryside.
'This is the kind of country I like best-it's vast, empty and remote -beautifully shaped like a huge piece of sculpture and silent except for the larks and curlews and the wind in the grass.'
Producer The Codebreakers BRUCE NORMAN
Producer A Country Walk DAVID SPIRES

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.
