: The Atomic Spy

Klaus Fuchs was perhaps the most dangerous spy in wartime Britain. He passed vital information to the Russians, saving them ten years in creating their A-bomb, and severely damaged relations between the Western allies.
Fuchs fled Nazi Germany and came to Britain in 1933. He was naturalised, got a job as a physicist and joined the British-American programme to build the atom bomb. To his colleagues he seemed more English than the English and his patriotism was never questioned as he rose to become Head of the Theoretical Physics Division at Harwell. He was finally uncovered in 1950 and sentenced to 14 years in prison.
Norman Moss pieces together the story of Fuchs..... from his own confession and from the recollection of his friends and colleagues.

Whose Benefit?
Presented by Mary Goldring
Recent allegations that the social security system is being widely abused and that many of the lower-paid prefer benefits to work have focused attention on a corner-stone of the Welfare State. What should be the relationship between benefits and wages? Should the web of benefits be simplified? Can we devise a tax system which would remove some of the present anomalies?

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.
