The word kamikaze is synonymous with death. But not every kamikaze who vowed to die in the Second World War fulfilled his promise. Shot down on route to the target, orstill waitingto be called when the war ended, there were a handful of kamikazes who survived.
Tonight'sfilm,featuringfirst-time interviews with the survivors and archive footage, reveals how a nation turned suicide into strategy. The special fury of the kamikaze is captured in some of the most vivid combat footage everfilmed and interviews with US veterans illustrate the difficulty of fighting an enemy determined to die.

: Cinema Europe: the Other Hollywood

Kenneth Branagh narrates the fourth of a six-part series telling the story of early film-making in Europe.
The Music of Light. Duringthe 1920s, France had a cinema industry which was potentially capable of rivalling
Hollywood's. It discovered the value of mini-series, docu-dramas and historical films, and in 1927 it reached its creative peak with Abel Gance 's
Napoleon. Nevertheless, the country's studio system remained virtually ignored outside Europe.

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.
