: Timewatch Special: All the King's Men

In January 1943 a lone British agent was dropped over occupied France. His name was Henri Dericourt. His mission was to organise the reception and departure of RAF flights crucial to the secret work of SOE - the Special Operations Executive. Operating out of Paris, Dericourt quickly earned a reputation as one of the best agents in the field.
But within six months of his arrival, SOE suffered their greatest disaster of the war. In the summer of 1943 Prosper, their largest network in France, was wiped out and more than 400 French resistance workers arrested. Post-war investigations established that Dericourt had fed secrets to the Germans ever since he had begun his work in France.
But Dericourt was no simple traitor. What then was his role in the disaster and for whom was he really working? John Woodvine narrates an incredible tale of deception and personal rivalry at the heart of the British Secret Service during World War II.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
