: Cold War

Resuming the 24-part series on postwar hostility between the United States and Soviet Union, narrated by Kenneth Branagh. MAD 1960-72. The phrase MAD-mutual assured destruction - summarised
American nuclear strategy in the sixties; a policy which guaranteed that opposing sides would both be annihilated if one attacked the other using nuclear power.
The Cuban missile crisis of 1962 narrowly avoided disaster, but atomic destruction - by design or by accident- remained a possibility. The superpowers'
Strategic Arms Limitation Talks resulted in an agreement to reduce the number of missiles.
However, the introduction of multiple independent re-entry vehicles - or MIRVs - upped the nuclear ante once again.

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.
