: The Deadly Stroke

On 3 July 1940 the Royal Navy attacked and largely destroyed the French Fleet as it lay at its moorings in the harbour of Mers-el-Kebir.
Warren Tute traces the events which tragically and inevitably led to this confrontation which the French regarded as murderous aggression and the British as a grim but unavoidable necessity.
With CAPITAINE BERNARD DUFAY ; CAPTAIN G. H. PETERS , DSC, RN; COMMANDER W. J. FARRELL , OBE, DSC. RN; REAR ADMIRAL T. L. EDDISON , CB, DSO; and the recorded voice of WINSTON
CHURCHILL.

: Analysis: A Guardian for Children

"There are some parents who need their children, but there are some children who do not need their parents - they need something much better"
(Raissa Page, Association of British Adoption Agencies)

Cruelty, neglect, mental instability and quarrels over custody constitute family life for thousands of children. And yet there is no system for representing the rights of children if parents, their natural guardians, fail to fulfil their obligations.
Analysis examines the deficiencies in the laws safeguarding the welfare of children. Do local authorities use the power they have to provide care and protection? Should children at risk have their own advocate or be under the jurisdiction of a special court? Would a Guardian for Children threaten parents' rights?

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.
