: With Friends like These

Don't Mention the War. Although many fans seem to want a re-enactment of the Second World War every time soccer teams from the UK and Germany meet, there's more to the relationship between these two countries than the 1939-45 conflict. In the second of three programmes, reporter Michael Cockerell uses political interviews and archive news footage to illustrate how the Beatles spent their decisive, formative years in Berlin, why Germans such as Prince Albert married into the British royal family, and how certain prominent figures shared Basil Fawlty's xenophobic views. Contributors include German Chancellor Gerhardt Schroeder and John Cleese , co-creator of the classic Fawlty Towers episode The Germans.

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.
