: Underground Congress

The proceedings of the 14th Extraordinary Congress of the Czechoslovak Communist Party in August 1968.
On 22 August 1968 Soviet forces invaded Czechoslovakia to stop the liberalisation of the country under Dubcek and to forestall the dismissal of the hard-liners in the party by the Congress due to be held in September 1968. But right under the noses of the Soviet troops that Congress was held: it was convened within a few hours of the news of the invasion.
Tonight's programme reconstructs the events of the Congress from the records of the proceedings which have now become available.
Script compiled by Stuart Hood
Narrated by Hugh Lunghi with the voices of Kathleen Helme, John Bryning, Ronald Forfar, Kerry Francis, John Gabriel, Malcolm Hayes, Edward Kelsey, Godfrey Kenton, Nigel Lambert, Clifford Norgate, Hector Ross, John Rye, Andrew Sachs, James Thompson, Patrick Tull

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.

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.
