Narrator Frank Windsor
' When I got on the bus the conductor looked at me, and she said, " Are you from Dunkirk? " So I said Yes", and she said " Well I'm not taking any money off you." And she went round the bus with her hat and started a collection.'
When the defeated, weary soldiers of the British Expeditionary Force reached England after the ordeal of Dunkirk, they were welcomed with a unique outpouring of tenderness and affection. More of them had come home than anyone had dared to hope. Within a few days, France would have fallen and Britain would be standing alone against Hitler and the German war machine. 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.
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.
