: Assignment

Tales of Ethnic Cleansing
The town of Knin in the former
Yugoslavia was cleansed of its entire population overjust one weekend in August. Nearly 200,000 Serbs fled from the advancing Croats, the largest one-off migration in Europe since the Second World War.
The refugees, who left with nothing and acknowledge they will never see their homes again, articulate their despair, while the local priest equates the experience with a living hell.
Allan Little visits the town that switched nationality in a day and sees how Croat control has fundamentally changed the area, with new shops, a new mayor, new residents occupying empty properties and even a marriage in the newly reopened Catholic church. Producer Phil Rees ; Editor Keith Bowers

: The Boss

Fifth in a six-part series in which bosses turn a video camera on themselves.
A Tale of Two Chairmen. Mike
Woodhouse is one of Britain's leading industrialists and a passionate believer that investment in the education of young people is fundamental to future British success. When the former deputy chairman of Courtaulds and the current chairman of Rexam PLC took the chair of the Prince's Trust
Volunteers organisation, he brought four decades of experience to the post.
With characteristic zeal, Woodhouse set a target of involving 25,000 unemployed young people per year in the PTV's community projects by the year 2000. The film captures the spirit of an enthusiastic captain of industry who steadfastly refuses to lose faith in an ever-changing world.

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
