Edward Woodward as Oloff in The Story of Oloff de Wet
Oloff de Wet, sculptor and artist, was the only Briton to be sentenced to death by the Nazi People's Court. He was kept in solitary confinement, manacled hand and foot, for 18 months, and finally tried in Berlin in 1941 and sentenced to death.
The story of his survival for four years in a condemned cell and his eventual escape, is one of the most courageous episodes of World War ii.
Script and production by ALAN BURGESS
Italy in Transition
A report by David Willey
In Italy the Communist Party is rapidly increasing its support and controls five of the 20 regions. It also dominates most of the big cities. The country is almost bankrupt, unemployment and inflation are high, and strikes are commonplace. What are the remedies and policies proposed by the leading parties? What effect do the domestic problems have on Italy's future as a member of the EEC and NATO? Can anything be learned from the Italian experience?
Producer GREVILLE HAVENHAND
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.
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.
