: KAVANAGH VON BALLYBRACK....

The Wild Geese in the Service of Austria by CHRISTOPHER Duffy
Lecturer in Military History at the Royal
Military Academy, Sandhurst The Irish soldiers of fortune who fought for France are well known. What is not so well known is that Wild Geese appear widely elsewhere-even as far afield as the Imperial Chinese Navy. Dr. Duffy has made a special study of those who took service with Austria; in particular, Feldmarschall-Lieutenant Maximilian Ulysses Reichs-Kraf von Browne, who was perhaps the greatest of them. Dr. Duffy finds that first-hand research gives a picture of the Austrian Wild Geese which differs considerably from that encouraged by the romantic nationalism of the nineteenth century.

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.
