: Dunkirk 1940

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.

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.
