: Don't You Know There's a War On?

A three-part history of the Second World War, told by the men and women who fought on the home front, recalling how ordinary families were affected at home, at work and in their leisure hours.
Archive material re-creates what the people at home heard, and they recall how they lived, loved, laughed and worked through the dark days of the war - the years of austerity, rationing, the evacuation of children, wedding nights in the underground, when you couldn't turn a light on and had to "make do and mend".
Producers Maura Clarke and John Gumett
Continued tomorrow and Monday at 6.00pm

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.
