The Stolen Child
During the Second World War 200,000 Polish children were captured by the Nazis and taken to Germany to replenish the "master race". This is the story of two cousins, stolen on the same day, Alojzy and Leon Twardecki (Alojzy was 4, Leon was 10). Alojzy was adopted by a good Nazi family. He knew nothing of his Polish past until, one day when he was 12, a letter arrived from Poland. Producer Catrine Clay

: Locomotion

Managers of the Stockton to Darlington line wanted to abandon steam power and revert to horses when Stephenson's Locomotion took to the rails in 1825, while critics doubted the safety of Brunei's Maidenhead bridge.
Such scepticism is revealed In the second of this new documentary series tracing the history of railways. The programme reveals that the skills and techniques developed by people like Stephenson and Brunei are still being used in such projects as the Channel Tunnel.
Those early misgivings gave way to a tide of rail-building.
Danger lurked, however. "The railways in the 1890s were little less than a slaughterhouse," says railway flreman-turned-historian David McKenna.

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.
