: When Our Boys Came Home

Over 100 British troops will never return from Iraq, having perished in action. But what of those who arrive home alive but injured? This emotive documentary captures the pain and suffering of three men who served for Queen and country. Colour sergeant Albert was a victim of "friendly fire", as was Daniel, whose experiences as a lance corporal in the war zone led to countless operations. Richard, a sergeant major, felt isolated and totally unprepared. Why are these voices seldom heard when the rights and wrongs of the Iraq war are fought over?

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.
