: The Man They've Called a Traitor

Dr Otto John
Did West Germany's Chief of Internal Intelligence defect on 20 July 1954. when he vanished from Berlin: or was he kidnapped by a Soviet agent? Why did he suddenly return, 17 months later, to West Germany where he was arrested, tried and sentenced to four years' hard labour?
On the eve of the British publication of his autobiography, Twice Through the Lines, DR OTTO JOHN talks to BRIAN CONNELL. He discusses his part in the anti-Nazi 'German Resistance Movement; his escape to Britain after the failure of the plot to blow up the Führer on 20 July 1944: the circumstances of his mysterious disappearance 18 years ago: and his fight to clear his name. Producer MICHAEL EMBER
(Paul Rotha 's documentary The Life of Adolf Hitler : World Cinema, BBC2 Thursday, 10.10 pm: followed bv Late Night Line-Up's assessment of The Plot to Kill Hitler ' in which Dr Otto John also takes part)

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.
