One of a series of programmes transmitted this week to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in January 1945.

Members of Warsaw's Jewish Ghetto Fighters also tell the story of the inspirational uprising of the doomed Jews of Warsaw. One of their number describes a feeling of serenity at the end of the uprising, recalling "I came out of the sewers, I was alone. I didn't meet a living soul ... I said to myself 'I'm the last Jew, I'll wait for morning, and for the Germans.'"

(The season continues with Richard Dimbleby at Belsen tomorrow at 10.15 pm)


Presenter: Claude Lanzmann

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.
