: Assignment: Petra and the General

Petra Kelly has been described as one of the most influential women of the 20th century. As founder of the mould-breaking German Green Party she helped to make environmental protection a political issue around the world. She was also a passionate peace campaigner and is credited with helping to shape modern Germany. By contrast, her death was a squalid affair. Her body, and that of her army general former lover, lay undiscovered in a house for three weeks.
After intense speculation - including both assassination and suicide pact theories - police concluded that Gerd Bastian shot her before turning the gun on himself. Tonight, Isobel Hilton traces the rise, fall, and violent end of Petra Kelly, and looks at the vacuum her death has created in German politics.

: Coal

Ten years ago, the Nottinghamshire miners were about to face their greatest crisis when they decided to break away from the NUM, to defy the miners' strike and return to work. Now the breakaway union that they formed (the Union of Democratic Mineworkers) is witnessing the slow death of the coalfields, watching promises being broken and traditions collapsing.
Charles Stewart and Malcolm
Hirst, the team who observed Lewisham Council in the fly-on-the-wall Town Hall series, spent a year in Nottinghamshire filming the plight of the miners. In
Blackmail, the first programme in this new six-part series, the workers at Clipstone and Rufford collieries face redundancy, while UDM president Neil Greatrex tries to secure a future for his members.
"When Greatrex took over in 1992, he was handed a poisoned chalice, says Charles Stewart. "He's effectively presiding over the death of an industry, but he's afraid of nobody and determined to get the best deal he can." Executive producer Paul Hamann

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
