: Stephen Grenfell is the storyteller in OUR DAY AND AGE

17:'Missing--Believed Killed'Written by Stephen Grenfell
Series edited and produced by Alan Burgess
Last December a Bristol freighter aircraft crashed in the Cameron Highlands of Malaya after a supply-dropping operation. Twelve days later a search and rescue patrol came upon a dirty, haggard young man of nineteen, four miles from the crash. ' Have we had Christmas yet? ' was the first question this young soldier put to his rescuers. He was Driver Thomas Lee of the Royal Army Service Corps-the sole survivor of the gallant Servicemen who had set out on this particular supply drop. This programme tells the story of Driver Lee's battle to remain alive in the Malayan jungle.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
