: 444 Days to Freedom

What Really Happened in Iran
Five years ago this week, on the last day of Jimmy Carter 's and the first of Ronald Reagan 's presidency, a Boeing 727 of Air Algeria took off from Tehran's
Mehrabad Airport and flew out of Iran. On board were 52 American hostages, who had been held captive by the regime of the Ayatollah Khomeini for over 14 months Their ordeal began on 4 November 1979, when
Islamic zealots stormed the American Embassy in Tehran, initiating a major confrontation between the USA and Iran. Some
Americans, helped by the Canadian Ambassador and his staff, managed to escape The rest were forced to undergo a long and frightening imprisonment, in the course of which their captors played mental and emotional games with them and even submitted some of them to the horror of a mock execution.
444 Days to Freedom is the product of several years of intensive research by the British-bom Canadian film-maker Les Harris. It combines exclusive Iranian-shot footage from inside the American Embassy with first-hand accounts by a number of former hostages, including the American Charge d'Affaires Bruce Laingen.

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
