: Icemen

The last of three programmes telling the history of Arctic exploration.
The Cold Front. The airmen of the thirties dreamt that one day the Arctic would become the crossroads of the northern hemisphere. Instead it became a vital battleground during the Second World War when German weathermen fought secret battles with Allied troops on remote Arctic islands. When the war ended the military buiId up continued as Soviet and American generals planned Cold War battles over the North Pole. See today's choices.
Producer Mick Conefrey ; Executive producer Clare Paterson Subtitled ....
BBC BOOK: Icemen: A History of the Mic and Its Explorers £12.99 from bookshops

9.30pm BBC2
Nowhere was the Cold War more frigid than in the Arctic, as the final programme in this absorbing series shows. It surveys attempts to make use of the region's strategic value as the shortest route between America and the former USSR.
Early forays included Sir Hubert Wilkins's attempt to go under the icepack in a second-hand submarine. The Second World War brought conflict as far north as Spitsbergen, 600 miles from the Pole as Norwegians and Germans sought to maintain weather stations to provide meteorological information.
But it was the Cold War that saw the real militarisation of the region, with the USA's chain of early-warning radar stations and the USSR's ice stations. The key to supremacy lay under the ice, as Wilkins had dreamt 30 years earlier.

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.

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