A story of an epic
The first of two programmes, compiled by ALAN HAYDOCK
Narrator Frank Windsor
Eight months after the start of the Second World War, the Germans launched their first offensive in the West. A fortnight later the Allied Armies faced disaster. Trapped within a rapidly shrinking coastal perimeter, they had only one escape route, the sea. Under constant bombardment, strafed by enemy aircraft, and menaced by mines and torpedoes, they were ferried across the Channel by a vast improvised armada of ships of all kinds and sizes. The events of the nine days of Dunkirk are remembered now, 40 years later, by some of the men and women who lived through them.

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.
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.
