: War Babies

Gary and Kevin were both born in 1969, the year the present
Troubles broke out in Northern
Ireland. Like thousands of others they have known no other life. This documentary, the last programme in the 25 Bloody
Years season, was filmed over one week and follows Gary, Kevin and the other
25-year-olds living in the mid-Ulster town of Lurgan.
The programme reveals how segregation influences all aspects of their life - from which side of the street they can walk on after dark to which pubs they can frequent.
On the second day of filming an explosion kills a man and his family as they drive down a Protestant street. The repercussions affect everyone, even those who do not know the victims. "Everytimethereisany thought of getting together, along comes another attack to drive a wedge between the two communities," says one 25-year-old woman. Producer Mike Dutfield

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.
