One/ Bang-Bang/PA voice:
After the invasion of Norway in 1940 many
Norwegians escaped from their native shores to
Britain in small fishing boats. Landfall for them, as often as not, was somewhere in the Shetland Archipelago.
Soon, many were ferrying agents and equipment back to occupied Norway. Leif Larsen one of the legendary leaders from those days recalls, along with a few of the others involved, some of the memories of this hazardous operation that was called The Shetland Bus.

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.
