1/2. War correspondent
Michael Nicholson presents a personal history of the Vietnam War, to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of Saigon. As well as his own memories of reporting on the conflict, he draws on the first-hand experiences of journalists, writers, photographers, camera operators and sound recordists, to recall in graphic detail the horrors, privations, and also the comradeship and humour of war. He begins at the end, with his own escape from Saigon, and then looks at how it all began, and at the civil unrest in the US and elsewhere that followed the notorious My Lai massacre in 1968, when US troops killed hundreds of innocent civilians. Contributions are from Max Hastings , Sandy Gall , John Tidmarsh , John Lawrence , Julian Pettifer , Nat Gibson and Martin Bell. Producer Adam Fowler

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.
