: Timewatch Special: Dunkirk 1940: the 'Great Escape'

On 10 May 1940, the German Army drove westwards into Holland, Belgium and France.
Less than two weeks later, Hitler's Panzers had reached the sea, trapping the armies of Britain and France in a pocket of land around the French port of Dunkirk.
Escape seemed impossible. But, within nine days, more than 300,000 of these men were safely ashore back in England. How, against all the odds, had nearly a third of a million men been rescued from the beaches?
Using eye-witness accounts and archive film, Timewatch recalls the political and human dilemmas which, 50 years ago, dominated an incredible nine days in British history.

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.
