: SOE - Subversion

The third of eight stories about the Special Operations Executive.
Narrated by Michael Bryant On 29 August 1943, the people of Copenhagen awoke to the sound of muffled explosions as the Danish Navy scuttled its ships. The noise marked the end of more than three years' peaceful occupation by the Germans. That summer had seen a crescendo of violence in Denmark - organised by SOE.
Working through Danish agents, SOE had engineered the overthrow of a collaborationist government, and brought Denmark into the war. The story is told using unique film shot by resistance workers throughout the Occupation. Enormous emotional impact

: Black Harvest

The Fight for the Pilot Whale Written by DAVID BEAN
Narrated by Anthony Smith A year ago, the converted trawler Sea Shepherd left Plymouth for a summer's vigil around the Faroe Islands. On board were members of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society led by Paul Watson. Their objective was to try to stop the Faroese killing of pilot whales - a tradition the islanders have followed for centuries. The conservationists believe that the high standard of living now enjoyed by the Faroese means there is no need for them to kill 2,000 pilot whales a year. Both sides were prepared for confrontation ... but not for what actually happened.

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.
