: Storyville Control Room

Arab broadcaster al-Jazeera is notorious for relaying the pronouncements of Osama Bin Laden to the world. But is it really an anti-American mouthpiece for Islamic terrorists? This thought-provoking documentary follows the station's reporters and producers as they cover the recent war in Iraq. In interviews they give their views on freedom of speech, media manipulation and criticism of the West, while American journalists tell of their own particular pressures. In the midst of it all, the young US military press officer John Rushing does his level best to understand the Arab viewpoint while also trying to defend the US military action in every possible way.
Director Jehane Noujaim ; Series editor Nick Fraser

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.
