: Drama on 3: Talking to Terrorists

By Robin Soans. This play is based on interviews the writer, director and actors undertook with people from around the world who have been involved in terrorism. They wanted to know what makes ordinary people do extreme things. As well as those who crossed the line, they met peacemakers, politicians, warriors, journalists, hostages and psychologists, and their stories lead from Uganda, Israel, Turkey, Iraq and Ireland to the heart of the British establishment.

: Sunday Feature: You Must Remember This

Oral history is everywhere. Life stories leap from the screen, out of the airwaves and off the printed page. Now you can even pay a few dollars to sit in a booth in Grand Central Station to capture your own family history. But what is the story of oral history itself? Can it be trusted, has it remained true to its origins and where is it going? Oral historian Alan Dein turns the microphone on practitioners and subjects. Producer Julian May

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.
