: The Kidnappers

A series of four dramatisations of 20th-century kidnappings narrated by René Cutforth 4: Death in the Skies
In December 1973 two Arab guerillas in a dramatic attack slaughtered more than 30 people at Rome airport. At gun-point they commandeered a Lufthansa Boeing 737 and, with six Italian policemen as hostages, flew off to Athens. Here they shot one of their prisoners and threatened to kill all the crew unless their demands were met. The lives of the crew and hostages hung in the balance as they forced the pilot to take off once more for an unknown destination. With SEAN ARNOLD, JACK CARR,

Work! Be Proud! Be Confident! A view of Turkey by Ian McIntyre
The words of the title were Atatürk's, and the influence of the 'Eternal Leader' remains powerful 36 years after his death. Today Turkey tends to capture the headlines only when trouble flares in Cyprus. In tonight's Analysis Ian McIntyre, just back from Ankara and Istanbul, examines some of the other issues - political, social and economic- which preoccupy the heirs of the Ottomans.

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.
