: The Night the Germans Didn't Come

Saturday, 7 September 1940, was the day the London Blitz began. But it was also the night the dreaded codeword 'Cromwell' was issued: the night the church bells rang; the night an army officer decided to arm his men with spanners; when a Middlesex Home Guard went looking for parachutists with a broom handle; and a former nun wondered if she could bring herself to kill an enemy soldier with a garden fork.
David Mahlowe introduces the first-hand memories of these and other people who recall the events of May-September 1940. which culminated in The Invasion that Never Was.
With the recorded voices of Winston Churchill, Anthony Eden, Adolf Hitler, and some of the British men and women who defeated him.
Written by Norman Longmate, with the assistance of contributors to his recently published book, How We Lived Then.
(from Manchester)

Why is this so? And what happens to the young mother's education? What help can the Welfare State offer her and the baby? What of the young father, and the law regarding ' age of consent '?
Four schoolgirl mothers, a grandmother and grandfather talk to RITA DANDO. In discussion:
MRS MARGARET BRAMALL , Director, National Council for the Unmarried Mother and her -Child DAME MARGARET miles, Head-mistress of a girls' comprehensive school

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.
