: Copenhagen

Adapted from the play by Michael Frayn , this drama starring Stephen Rea , Daniel Craig and Francesca Annis , speculates on what might have taken place when, in 1941, German physicist Werner Heisenberg travelled to Copenhagen to meet his Danish counterpart Niels Bohr. Old friends and close colleagues, the two had revolutionised physics during the 1920s with their work on quantum mechanics and the uncertainty principle. Now, events placed them on opposite sides of a world war. So what prompted Heisenberg to make a journey fraught with danger and threatening political embarrassment? And how was it linked to Nazi Germany's failure to create an atomic bomb? Adapted by Howard Davies ; Producer Richard Fell
Director Howard Davies First shown on BBC4 (S) (W) Copenhagen Fallout, about the story behind the play is on BBC4 at 12.10am

Carrie Fisher , aka Princess Leia, tells the story of the year she found fame in a small independent film - Star Wars.

Meanwhile, the country celebrated the Queen's Silver Jubilee in the streets - although the Sex Pistols told everyone where to stick it. Director Steven Grandison ; Series producer Alan Brown

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.
