: The Death of Yugoslavia: The Gates of Hell

Fourth in a five-part series in which leaders in the bloodiest conflict in Europe since the Second World War explain the chain of events leading to the collapse of Yugoslavia.

New evidence shows that it was President Slobodan Milosevic of Serbia himself who ordered the ethnic cleansers into Bosnia. For the first time, Serb paramilitary leader Vojislav Seselj implicates Milosevic as the man directly behind the murders, rapes and mass deportations. Two weeks after the ethnic cleansing began, while returning from talks with European Community peace negotiator Lord Carrington, President Izetbegovic of Bosnia was kidnapped by the Yugoslav army. He and his captors tell the story of how he survived.
(An interview with Slobodan Milosevic can be seen at 2.30 am.)

Director: Paul Mitchell
Producer: Norma Percy

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.
