Cry Hungary
Forty years ago tnis week, thousands of Hungarians demonstrated on the streets of Budapest in protest against Soviet occupation of their country and communist oppression. Subsequent
Soviet retribution resulted in the deaths of between 3,000 and 5,000 Hungarians.
In 1986, to mark the 30th anniversary of the uprising, BBC1 showed Jeremy Bennett 'sfilm Cry Hungary, featuring interviews with three of those who fought in 1956. Last summer in Budapest, this trio of ex-revolutionaries - Bela Liptak , an engineer resident in America, farmer and journalist Greg Pongratz , and Imre Mecs , once condemned to death and now a member of the Hungarian Parliament-were reunited. Together, theywatched the 1986 film and discussed how far the ideals of the revolution were achieved.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
