: Battle for Islam

Since the events of 11 September, headlines focusing on Islamic extremism have ignored the positive changes and intense soul searching that are taking place in many Muslim countries.

Could change mean a future of peaceful co-existence between Muslim and non-Islamic countries?

: Dunkirk: the Soldiers' Story

On 10 May 1940, the Germans overran Holland and Belgium. The Blitzkrieg had begun. As the Nazis turned their attention to France, the British Army - its ranks recently swelled by 18- and 19-year-olds - hardly knew what hit it. For those young men it was a terrifying baptism of fire, for the British Army a crushing defeat that led to the largest evacuation in military history. More than 60 years on, survivors recall their first experiences of mechanised warfare. Director/Producer Peter Gordon The Other Side of Dunkirk is tomorrow at 11.20pm

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.
