Moira Lister in I Do Not Want to Remember by HEDA MARGOLIUS
The book adapted and produced by ALAN BURGESS
The story of the young and beautiful Heda Margolius was commonplace enough in Czechoslovakia at the outbreak of the Second World War. A Jewess, just married, she was transported to Auschwitz concentration camp with her family. '
Only she survived. Only she escaped. Her experiences during her escape and afterwards in Communist Czechoslovakia were heartbreaking. Yet there is never a hint of self-pity In
Heda Margolius 's book. It rings with a defiance and deep understanding of the human predicament. Today she lives in the USA.
Also taking part:

: The Rest of the Day is My Own

By the end of the 70s, it's estimated that ten million people will be officially retired.
But do we plan sufficiently for retirement and how well do people cope with the abrupt change from life at work to life at home?
Tonight's programme looks at the problems and pleasures of retirement and examines what is being done to help the shop-floor worker and the chief executive to adjust.

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.
