(L'Oeil de Vichy)

French and foreign Jews were rounded up and imprisoned on the orders of the French government. The Vichy regime is examined in this documentary directed by film-maker Claude Chabrol who uses press, radio and newsreel archives to show how France was governed between 1940 and 1944 - through propaganda, misinformation and manipulation of the news. In French with English subtitles.

: The Jupiter Collision

Watch This Space
Starting this weekend the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet, identified in 1992 during its last visit to the solar system by Carolyn and Gene Shoemaker and their colleague David Levy , will collide with Jupiter. A detonation equivalent to millions of Hiroshima bombs is likely.
Series producer Tim Haines explains that the comet was
"nicked from its orbit around the Sun" by the pull of Jupiter, and two years ago it came so close that the planet's gravity tugged it out into a "string of pearls" consisting of about 20 mountain-size rocks.
This time it will come even closer, explosively so. The
Galileo satellite will have the ringside seat and though the impact will be on the "dark side" of the planet as far as we are concerned, scientific instruments will assess the phenomenon and perhaps detect a reflected flash.
Tonight's programme covers the exciting build-up to an event unparalleled in the history of astronomy. There will be brief follow-ups each weekday evening before Newsnight and on Friday The Crash Bash at
8.00pm reviews the events. Director/Producer Taghi Amiram

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.
